Eric Appleby came to life after I combined my love of action movies with my experiences of working in schools. I thought it would be really cool to set an action-packed story in a school and after lots of thinking and planning, Eric’s adventure became reality in September 2015.
After writing lots of short stories for Impossible Tales, I wanted to write a longer story which was a little different. I didn’t feel I could do Eric’s story justice in a short story, so he got a book all of his own. I have the sequel mapped out so you’ll definitely be seeing Eric again sometime in the future.
The book features illustrations by Martin Spore, a talented illustrator. Martin’s fantastic illustrations add another dimension to the story and it was a pleasure to work with him. He also designed the book cover, which I think looks splendid.
