What can you tell us about Fashion Fraud, the latest in the EJ12 Girl Hero Series?
SMCF} Fashion Fraud takes place in Paris, capital of fashion and art but someone is stealing the art. Does it have something to do with the fashion shows? EJ12 will have to be a model spy to find out ....
Where did you get inspiration for this Story?
SMCF} I first thought of a mission set in Paris when I was lucky enough to go there with my family two years ago - and I loved writing it!
Who does the Fabulous Illustrations?
SMCF} Dyani Stagg does the wonderful EJ illustrations
Have you ever been to France before?
SMCF} I used to live in London so I have been very lucky to go to France quite a few times. One of my favourite things is the beautiful food and how they arrange the food like works of art in the shops.
What is your favourite charm that EJ uses in the story?
SMCF}My favourite charm in Fashion Fraud is the heart charm - but you will have to read the story to find out why!
What was your biggest Fashion Disaster at School?
SMCF} My biggest fashion disaster? I think I may have blocked it from my mind but it may have been wearing my pyjama pants under my dress to school and only finding out once i was on the bars!
Did you have a favourite Magazine when you were younger?
SMCF}There weren't really magazines for young girls when I was 10 -I wish there were!
Did you use any specific Writing Techniques when Writing Fashion Fraud?
SMCF}My writing tips are always the same: keep writing and re-writing! Always ask yourself,
'can this be better?'
