My name is Maggie Clifford and I’m sixty-eight years young. I started writing Ikky’s Adventures about twelve years ago, and I have enjoyed every minute of it.
I first started writing about Ikky, not only in the hope that it would help me overcome my fear of frogs (which it has????), but also to show children that all of mother nature’s creations live and breathe just like us. Sometimes people can be cruel to animals, and through my stories I hope to show children from an early age that animals have feelings too.
I have become quite attached to Ikky and his friends. They seem real to me now, and to the children and grown-ups that have heard my stories. When I read them, I can see the warmth in their looks. I think I may have achieved what I was aiming for.
My two chocolate Labradors, Jak and Toby, walked in the country with me in the beginning, and now it’s my white Labrador, Ned; the funny things and the sad things all come together to help
me write my stories, which seem to be enjoyed by all
that hear them. I hope you like them too.
