1 What's your company called?
Dinosaur Books.

2 What do you publish?
At the moment, fiction and activity books for children aged 5 to 12. We may expand our age range and into non-fiction in due course.

3 What's the story of the company?
The company was launched in January by Sonya McGilchrist. I've worked as a producer and reporter for BBC News and Current Affairs, most recently in BBC2 documentaries. I have a passion for children's books and it's an exciting time to become an independent publisher.

4 How's business?
Good and getting better. What's most encouraging is the feedback to our books from industry experts and readers.

5 What do you enjoy about being independent?
I love being small enough to take and implement decisions quickly.

6 What is the biggest single issue in publishing right now?
It depends who you are! The focus remains the same: getting the best books to the most customers.

7 What one piece of advice would you give to a fellow independent just starting out?
Be clear about your company's aim—in our case it's to offer young readers the highest quality books.

8 What do you get out of belonging to the IPG?
Expert, impartial advice and great networking.
