WORDS FOR LIFE
JUSTIN Somper is the award-winning author of eight novels for young people, all with a focus on high-octane fantasy adventure, driven by strong characters. Justin’s Vampirates series has recently been relaunched with new art and bonus written content. The first title in the sequence is Demons of the Ocean. Justin told us what his favourite book is:
“It’s a tie between The Great Gatsby and Tim Winton’s Cloudstreet. They are both books I return to again and again. I’ve been lucky enough to meet Tim Winton and have him sign my treasured copy. If I could be a character in an adult novel, it would be Nick Carraway, narrator of Gatsby.
