克莱儿·麦克福尔
英文教师、 苏格兰畅销书作家

我是《摆渡人》作者Claire McFall,如何从零开始成为畅销书作家,问我吧!

Hi,我是克莱儿·麦克福尔(Claire McFall),来自苏格兰的格拉斯哥。我是当地中学里的一名英语教师,也是一个孩子的母亲,读大学时的专业是媒体研究。2013年,我在英国出版了我的处女作——魔幻小说《摆渡人》,这本书在英国获得了一些文学奖(苏格兰童书奖、布兰福博斯奖长名单、卡耐基奖章提名等)。
2015年《摆渡人》中译本出版,至今销量超过100万册,我非常惊喜。现在,我在新浪微博注册了自己的账号,与中国读者积极互动,同时,我也在自学中文。当然,我并没有放弃我的教师工作,我仍然只是利用业余时间写作。如果你想知道如何从一个只是喜欢阅读并对写作有憧憬的人成为一名作家,想知道如何与自己的读者互动,提问吧!
(问吧作答主要由中译本出版方白马时光的编辑帮忙翻译。我的新浪微博ID是@克莱儿_麦克福尔,欢迎和我聊天。 )

It’s hard for me to say how school is different – as I don’t know all that much about education in china, but I teach High School in Scotland so I can tell you a bit about that. Pupils study individual subjects so that, when they leave, they don’t have an overall diploma like the American system, but have qualifications in different areas. By the time pupils are 15, they have already begun to specialise according to their interests.
Of course, school is more than just subjects. There is a strong emphasis on extra-curricular activities – sports and music are very common choices for pupils. Students in Scotland are very interested in China, and when I tell them about Ferryman being realised in Chinese they always ask to see it. They don’t have a strong knowledge of the country, though.
因为不太了解中国的教育情况,我可能没法直接回答这个问题,但我可以跟你说说苏格兰的中学教育。苏格兰的学生在中学时就有各自专门的学科,毕业时不是像美国学生那样有综合成绩或学分,而是会取得不同学科的毕业证书。所以,在他们15岁的时候,就已经具备某方面的专业才能了。
当然,学校更注重的是专项技能的培养,但也一直在鼓励学生一专多能的学习态度——苏格兰的学生大多数选择体育或音乐作课外兴趣。他们也都对中国很感兴趣,尽管还没有太深入地了解整个国家,但当我告诉他们《摆渡人》在中国所获得的欢迎时,同学们就立即让我show出中文版呢!
