Siobhan Dowd interviewed by Nikki Gamble

Siobhan Dowd was an extraordinary author giving us four fantastic and award winning novels before The Ransom of Dond - A Swift Pure Cry 2006, The London Eye Mystery 2007, Bog Child 2008 and Solace of the Road 2009– each recognised for their greatness. Sadly, Siobhan died in August 2007, aged 47. In her final days Siobhan set up The Siobhan Dowd Trust, which works to give young people the opportunity to read and enjoy literature.

This interview was first published on the Write Away website in 2007.

'The London Eye Mystery' was written before 'A Swift Pure Cry' but that was published as your debut novel, why was that?

Yes, it was in the main. I started writing it in 2003 and got as far as halfway through the first draft when Mark Haddon’s 'The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time' exploded on the scene. I was absolutely gutted, because my book is about an Asperger Syndrome boy who solves a mystery. It was a long time before I could face reading Mark’s book.

THE LONDON EYE MYSTERY

Author: Siobhan Dowd

Publisher: David Fickling Books

Suggested year group: 5

 

Synopsis: When Ted and Kat watched their cousin Salim get on board the London Eye, he turned and waved before getting on. After half an hour it landed and everyone trooped off - but no Salim. Where could he have gone? How on earth could he have disappeared into thin air? Since the police are having no luck finding him, Ted and Kat become sleuthing partners.

Despite their prickly relationship, they overcome their differences to follow a trail of clues across London in a desperate bid to find their cousin. And ultimately it comes down to Ted, whose brain works in its own very unique way, to find the key to the mystery. This is an unputdownable spine-tingling thriller!
