Happy Birthday, Brian Jacques, born 15 June 1939, died 5 February 2011
Quotes
I suppose there’s a child inside me who wants to get out, … A little baldy child with a beard. Ha!
The stories start to come to me in all sorts of ways. I dream some of the parts and I find myself restless when a story starts to weave in and out of my thoughts. Then I must get down to writing. It won’t let me rest until it is on the page!
I like to write in my garden, preferably but not exclusively, in good weather. I have a certain pen and a very old typewriter. Nothing else makes me feel comfortable.
I still pinch meself when I wake up of a morning, … Who ever thought I’d be a children’s author — let alone a best-selling children’s author? I feel I should still be driving a truck, or (working as) a longshoreman.
Look around you. Absorb and remember, use the things you know well and adapt them to your work. Above all, paint the picture with words.
Jacques wrote the Redwall series of children’s novels, which sold more than 20 million copies worldwide and were translated into 28 languages. He also wrote the Castaways of the Flying Dutchman series.

I couldn’t forgive him or like him, but I saw that what he had done was, to him, entirely justified. It was all very careless and confused. They were careless people, Tom and Daisy—they smashed up things and creatures and then retreated back into their money or their vast carelessness, or whatever it was that kept them together, and let other people clean up the mess they had made….
