BOOKS Jack the lad From EastEnders to the Full Monty – there isn’t much Jack Ryder hasn’t done! We catch up with him about his latest venture into children’s literature… Actor, Director and now Author – how did that happen? I’m still pinching myself. Whilst developing some fantastic shows with wonderful writers I became hooked. I then wrote and directed two short films which spurred me on to write screenplays. The process continued to evolve into writing a children’s book. Did you always want to write kid’s books? I’ve always had a passion for storytelling although I never knew where that passion would take me. I also have a very active imagination. How did the story come about? The original concept was in fact a screenplay I was writing which soon developed into a book. The story itself is loosely based on my own experiences growing up in London as a kid. It was a time of self-discovery and adventure coupled with change. Is the young Jack inspired by the old Jack? Yes, I believe both young and old are inherently inspired by one another. Can we expect more adventures with Jack in the future? I hope so. They’re wonderful characters to write and I feel incredibly connected to them all for different reasons. What advice can you give to young aspiring writers? Write what matters to you. If you believe in what you are doing and the story means something to you then people will want to listen. How can we inspire kids to get off screens and back into books? It’s my hope that despite screens, children’s authors will continue to create interesting stories that children want to read. What was your favourite book growing up? I think it has to be Matilda by Roald Dahl The strange girl with no memory – is she inspired by someone? I’m not going to reveal who she is as I don’t want to spoil it! But yes, the character was inspired by someone who is very close to me. What was your biggest adventure growing up? Oh wow – there were so many. The funny thing is, I still feel like I’m growing up. I still see the adventure and discovery in many things. I feel perhaps that my biggest adventure is yet to come. JACK’S SECRET SUMMER By Jack Ryder Join the Secret Summer gang on an unforgettable magical adventure, full of humour and heart. Jack has been dreading the summer holidays - his dad works long hours, and so all he has to look forward to is an empty house. But when his boisterous neighbours, Bruno and Rocco, make it their mission to pull him into an adventure, his life will never be the same again. Together they decide to explore the strange old house at the top of the hill, long abandoned and overgrown with ivy. But they soon discover the ivy hides more than just walls... the house is full of magical secrets, including a strange girl with no memory, who may hold the key to it all, if only she can remember...
