Author Sarah Moore Fitzgerald on Back to Blackbrick
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.
