Hi, soo I live in Australia and fell in love with your 'Wind on fire' trilogy many years ago. I've been looking to buy these books but there impossible to find in Brisbane, where I live. Is there hope of a re-print of this trilogy in the near future...? Haha... Or if not, could you make it so :). Love your work.

William Nicholson responded:

The books are all in print. Either ask your bookshop to order them, or get them online on Amazon. Great that you like them so much.

I am a teacher at a primary school in hampshire and we have just finished 'The Wind Singer' as our Guided Reading text. I have been amazed at how much the children (yr 5) have been able to get out of your book, but particularly impressed with the responses of one of the children. He has a real flair for writing and would love to be a novelist himself. I was approached by his mother this evening, who asked if it was possible for him to send you a sample of his work in response to your book. I would love to see what you make of his efforts too, so, I guess I am asking if there is an address that I could have, which would ensure the work gets to you? If there is, then please drop me an e-mail. kind regards Ben (Lymington Juniors)

William Nicholson responded:

Send the sample to me via my publisher - the address is on the first page of all the books - and they'll send it on to me. Usually I try to discourage being sent would-be writers' work, because there's just so much of it out there, but in this case I think it's really worth it.

Hello Mr. Nicholson, I was just wondering, if you were in the vicinity of Essex at the time your "Katherine howard" play was being performed, if you would like to come and see it! Rehearsals are going well, and we are performing the last week of May, and the first week of June. I am enjoying the part of your Katherine so much! Here is our home page. http://www.greville.org.uk/index.htm I am so glad you have written such a wonderful play, for my acting debut! yours sincerely Debbie Lee

William Nicholson responded:

I doubt if I'll be able to make it, I'm afraid. But I'm really pleased to hear it's going so well, and that you're having fun with it yourself. Let me know how it goes.

Why did you start writing? Did it take long to put it all your ideas into a comprehensive order? Is it hard for you to start a story?

William Nicholson responded:

I started writing for the joy of it; and that keeps me going to this day. Yes, it takes a long time to sort out each story, a lot of pondering, a lot of planning. Then you start work, and it all changes anyway.

Not a question but more of a wish.......that sometime in the future you would embark on another film along the lines of Firelight........my very all time favorite movie...... Very intense, superbly acted and directed and encompasses so many relationships in the film. I never get tired of watching it. Thank you for giving us such a powerful and intriguing movie. I also visited the Firle home when I was in England last year and the South Downs.......just a magnificent area to live. I'd love to go back.

William Nicholson responded:

A pleasure to hear how much you enjoy my film. Maybe one day I'll get back behind the camera. Meanwhile I'm happy living in sight of the South Downs, and getting on with my writing...

where did you get the inspiration for the 'Wind on Fire' trilogy? What makes your books so good?

William Nicholson responded:

Kind of you to be so nice about my books. I think my best answer is to say that my books, like all writers' books, come out of all the odd things that have gone to make my life. They may seem like fantasy, but really they're full of my family, the people I've met, the moments I've loved, the fears I've had, and so on. Books are a kind of journey inside someone's head. This is what makes reading such a unique experience. My books are me. If you write yourself (and if you don't, you should try it) you'll know what I mean.
