I am doing a school project

Dear Michelle Paver my name is Brooke Sims and I am a year 6 at Normandale school working on a big project. I am trying to find out what I want to be when I grow up and being an author is one of my interests. I have some questions that I would like to ask you kind of based on your series The Chronicles of Ancient Darkness and I was hoping you would be up to answering some of them??? These are just a few questions to help me get an idea of what it would be like as an author so I can present some of my research with my class.
How often did you write the chronicles of ancient darkness
In spirit walker you said you went on a research trip to kind of get in toraks position so would you tell me what that was like and how often you go on these research trips.
Do you find your job challenging
What are your daily jobs that contribute to being an author
What's your least favorite part of your job
What are 3 or 5 unusual/funny things that your job includes
Thank you for listening to my questions and if you could get back to me by Friday that would be awesome.

Dear Brooke, thanks for your message.  It’s good that you’re curious about being an author, and you ask some interesting questions. I’m  sure you’ll appreciate that I get lots of requests to help readers with their homework, and if I answered them all I’d never get time to write!  But you’ll find lots of information on my website www.wolfbrother.com. In particular, the Cave contains all sorts of information; and the Author’s Note at the back of each book talks about the research I did for each story.  I hope that helps a bit. Best wishes, Michelle
