Put your questions to Philip Pullman

Philip Pullman
Pullman published his first children's book in 1982
Philip Pullman, author of the His Dark Materials trilogy, is one of the world's best-known children's writers.

He has won several awards for the trilogy - Northern Lights , The Subtle Knife and The Amber Spyglass - including the Whitbread Book of the Year Award in 2002.

Northern Lights was made into a Hollywood film last year, The Golden Compass, starring Nicole Kidman and Daniel Craig.

And Billie Piper played the lead role in the BBC adaptations of his Sally Lockheart novels, The Ruby in the Smoke and The Shadow in the North. Pullman has also written several other books.

Pullman's His Dark Materials books have been controversial with some Christian groups who have accused Pullman of using them to promote his atheist beliefs, a claim he has denied.

Pullman will answer some of your questions as his 2005 book The Scarecrow and his Servant is adapted for the stage. It will open at London's Southwark Playhouse on 10 December.
