An Interview with Gill Lewis

The Letterpress Project has asked authors and illustrators to think about what has inspired them as artists, what their favourite books are and how they relate to their audience - we've also asked them if they themselves are book collectors.

We are delighted to present an exclusive interview with author, Gill Lewis. Gill worked as a vet in the UK and across the world before she became the acclaimed author of several books for children, including Sky Hawk and Gorilla Dawn. Gill’s writing has earned her numerous awards such as the UKLA Children’s Book Award and the Little Rebel Award, and several nominations for prestigious awards including the CILIP Carnegie Medal. In 2019 Gill won the Portsmouth Book Award with her first Barrington Stoke novel Run Wild. Gill lives in Somerset.
