Raymond is a writer, freelance editor and teacher. His children's novels are a mix of fantasy, sci-fi, and biology, told from a honey bee’s viewpoint. His picture book, Flight of the Honey Bee, was an American Library Association Notable Children’s Book, an LA Times choice, and an Outstanding Science Trade Book in the US. He loves writing about science and has taught Science Communication at Otago University and 10 years as a Primary School teacher.

 

To Become A Writer:

1. Don’t read, watch TV all day…no, not really...you should read great books and have adventures.

2. Write about how you experience the world. You have a unique viewpoint because you see the world in a unique way.

3. Persevere. Keep writing even when you don’t feel like it; even when your work gets rejected.

4. Learn to edit. It’s the most important skill. Anyone can write; not everyone can edit.
