Dame Lynley Dodd is special to many. She is the writer and illustrator of dozens of books including the eternally popular Hairy Maclary series.

Her words and images are imprinted onto the brains on multiple generations of children and parents. Megan Whelan speaks to Lynley about choosing to become a Dame when titles were restored, the creative process, managing her intellectual property, the Hairy Maclary app, and what her day to day life is like.
