About the AuthorClaire McPherson
I am a first-time author and illustrator. My debut children’s book ‘Eddie the Ogre’ is a tale of the magical mishaps of a little Ogre, who dreams of being a magician. The book started life as a little drawing project back in early 2015, when the Ogre didn’t have a name and the story was just a jumble of ideas and images. The sketches were put away and forgotten about for years, until my son Eddie found them whilst rooting around in a drawer he shouldn’t have been in! The expression of wonder on his face as he turned each page was the inspiration needed to finally finish the book and illustrate the last few scenes to make it complete.
The intention was never to publish the story, but there was enough interest from friends and parents who had seen the illustrations, that I decided to self-publish. I am extremely happy that I did, because now the story of Eddie’s magical misadventures is being enjoyed by children all around the world!
