Extra Notes

now launching her first short story written for YA readers. Sarahjane Funnell quotes:
“I can remember as a young girl being at home writing little stories and drawing pictures then putting little books together. I remember reading adventure books such as Enid Blyton classics and Alice in Wonderland as well as watching fantasy films including Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Disney’s Beauty and
the Beast and Sleeping Beauty. These stories and have inspired my love for castles, magical lands and imaginative creatures. As a teenager I loved watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer. It was my favourite teen series and I always wanted to be just like Buffy and became fascinated by Angel and the mystery that
surrounded him. I have also been inspired by the likes of other current fantasy films such as Twilight and Avatar. I also have a fondness for nature, beautiful gardens and historical houses which comes from growing up in Plymouth, Devon and being surrounded by the likes of Dartmoor, many National Trust houses and
of course the sea.”
