Cressida Cowell: Shedworker

 Cressida Cowell, the author of the hugely popular the How To Train Your Dragon books - and whose latest book The Wizards of Once has just come out - is also a shedworker. Indeed, she wrote all 12 of the Dragon books in her writing shed.

There's no internet and no telephone in her leafy London location where she told the BBC she is "buried in greenness and I can't really see the outside world". And she told the Telegraph:
My shed is so covered in roses that you can barely see out and I’m forced in on my own world, which is important. I also have a sofa to curl up on when I need inspiration. As a child I did all my homework in bed, so I think I associate a comfortable space with creativity. I have my own shed kettle too, so I can make endless cups of rooibos tea without trooping back to the house.
Here she talks us through the delights of shedworking.
