Jorgi asked Jonathan Stroud:

What motivates you to write these (amazing) books?

Jonathan Stroud Well, even as a small kid I had an itch to write (and draw... to make stuff, in other words). I love hearing great stories, and when I do I have a strong, irrational desire to invent stories of my own - it's continuing a conversation with great books of the past.
