I'm leaving my writing shed behind as I vlog from L.A.

I'm in America to look at some of the production around the latest How to Train Your Dragon film.

People ask me if I like the films, and I really do. They capture the spirit of the books really well - the humour, the action, the adventure. They're also very touching.

Also, I'd love to know if you have any questions about the films or writing in general. Please tweet me @CressidaCowell with anything you'd like to ask.
