In the lead up to The People’s Book Prize 2016 we caught up with author David Robertson to talk about his children’s book


Where did the idea of Dognapped! come from?

DOGNAPPED! came from a series of short articles that I used to do for our local agility club featuring my dog Misty. The newsletters were written from her point of view and proved to be very popular. It was a short step from there to creating a children’s book.

Troubador publish a variety of brilliant authors, what is it like to be in the company of talented writers?

As you say there are a lot of talented writers out there and to see your name in print is a wonderful experience. My episode is number 21 – episode 19 was Richard Madeley. That certainly makes you stop and take stock!

Have you got a message for your readers?

Thanks to you all. I’ve had some wonderful feedback so far and hopefully you’ll also enjoy what is to come.

What can we expect from you in the future?

There are two more children’s books involving Misty. IN THE DOGHOUSE! will be released in November followed by THE DOG WALK! next year. I have a sci-fi/ fantasy novel to be edited and I am hoping to write a drama/ documentary play for radio later this year. If that isn’t enough there is always the blog at the address below.

Any suggestions to support libraries?

I am currently chairman of Castle Writers, Dudley. We meet at Dudley Central Library weekly. My first book launch was there and IN THE DOGHOUSE! is already booked for its premiere in the reading room. They are not just for lending books. Use your local library, it is a wonderful part of your community.
