I love that too, even though I know it's somewhat disturbing!
Jacqueline Wilson talks about her autobiography (for children--how wonderful) in the Guardian. She wrote it for what I consider to be excellent reasons:
- "...in 2005, I was made the children's laureate, and possibly because of this I learnt that my editors at Random House were thinking of commissioning someone to write a slim biographical book about my life and work. I was flattered - but I also started to fret about the idea. Just call me a control freak, but I decided that maybe I wanted to write it. That way I'd be able to decide how I was going to do it, what to put in - and, more importantly, what to leave out."
