Why write a series based on Minecraft?

The idea for the Crafter’ Club series came about when author, Louise Guy, was looking for engaging fiction for her own 8 year old reluctant reader. Having little success in interesting her son with the piles of books she brought home from bookshops and the library, Louise decided to take matters into her own hands. Putting aside the adult fiction she was working on, Louise weighed up which interest area of her son’s she would tackle; Aviation or Minecraft? After much consideration she decided to write an adventure story based in the world of Minecraft.

This decision has seen not only Louise’s own reluctant reader develop a love for reading, but many other children too. The popularity of the Crafters’ Club series continues to grow and Louise is delighted to hear from many parents that the series has helped engage their child’s imagination.
