"I write so that children can feel represented in the world they live in, and so that readers can pick up a book that is a window into the lives of fellow humans from different cultures."
"I write because the stories are there, inside me, pushing their way out until I have no choice but to write them down."
"I come from a family of writers, on both sides of my heritage, Black Caribbean and white British. Writing and reading are conduits to empathy – you can walk in the shoes of others. They are tools in the fight for social justice as they widen the lens though which we perceive the world."
