Featured Interview With Adam Crettenden
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Born in Melbourne in 1975, I finished high school in 1993 and immediately set my sights on becoming a full-time horse racing broadcaster. Early in 1996, this was achieved when I was employed by a Melbourne radio station to cover race meetings in country Victoria. I now reside on a property around an hour out of Melbourne with several horses and the border collie, Sam Junior.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
Books have only become part of my life in the past 3 years. I started researching my first book, ‘Subzero’ in 2014 and also had the idea for my children’s book, Sam Junior’s Day around the same time. However, the workload of Subzero meant it quickly developed a higher priority and ended up being released first, in October 2016.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Dick Francis is my favourite. I also greatly admire many other horse topical authors such as Les Carlyon and Jessica Owers.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
Sam Junior’s Day. It’s the story, based on real events, of our family’s border collie dog. He is the ultimate routine dog and does anything in an attempt to please people. The book catalogues a typical day in his life, and all the events are true. It’s fully illustrated and released as a children’s book, is easy-to-read and short and would make an ideal bedtime read for a child.
