The inspiration behind the story

One of the things I’ve always enjoyed most about writing is the freedom it allows to climb into other people’s heads and imagine what makes them tick; what it feels like to be them.  I’ve always particularly enjoyed writing from the viewpoint of men and children.  With this story I wanted to experiment with writing in first person from the point of view of a much younger child. 

Over the last few years I’ve had the pleasure of spending time with a friend’s children and watching them grown up and been fascinated by their use of language and the things that seem to preoccupy them.  Also, since September 2008 I’ve been the Royal Literary Fund Fellow at Queen Margaret University in Edinburgh and have found, in particular, my work with EFL and dyslexic students fascinating as it has really made me wonder at how I ever learned to speak and write in English myself. 

It’s not until I started to relearn the often contradictory rules of grammar to enable me to explain it to students that I realised what a complex and often unfathomable language it is.  I find it fascinating the different ways language is used and misused.  After 17 months working on the discipline of academic writing, I enjoyed breaking all these rules and stripping the need to communicate back to basics with the voice of Frankie in the story.  Also, as an only child, I’ve always been fascinated by sibling rivalry, particularly in the early years where the siblings are close in age.
