Author Sarah Moore Fitzgerald on Back to Blackbrick

Sarah Moore Fitzgerald's beautiful Back to Blackbrick has just been published in Dutch as De geheimzinnige sleutel (The Mysterious Key) by The House of Books. What better time to ask her some questions? 

Hello Sarah, thank you so much for agreeing to this Q&A!
I’m so excited about the Dutch translation – thank you for being the person to bring ‘De Geheimzinnige Sleutel’ to a new set of readers in Holland!

Which age group did you have in mind for this novel? (Orion published it as a children's book, but isn't it more Middle Grade or even Young Adult?)
I started out with no idea what age group I was writing for, but when I spoke to the publishers, their sense was that the story is one for young adults. It’s recommended for 12+ in the UK, and I think that’s just about right, but it’s also a book that many adults have told me they’ve enjoyed too. It definitely deals with some themes that would be too grown-up for children younger than 12.
