Can you survive the snotpocalpyse?

Mucuszar and his awful germ army have conquered both nostrils and Jackson’s world is next!

Can Jackson and his friends stop the snotpocalypse? Or will Mucuszar’s deadly creation destroy the planet?


Hey Tarryn! First I want to say welcome to Two Chicks on Books I’m glad you could stop by for a chat! SNOTLINGS sounds AWESOME and I can’t wait for everyone to read it!

For the readers: can you tell us a little bit about SNOTLINGS and the characters?

Snotlings is about a boy named Jackson who loves picking his nose … until he finds tiny creature called a snotling inside his booger. Bad things start to happen and Jackson teams up with three kids from school – resilient Rosa, terrified Olivia and the school bully Tane to save their loved ones and their city from the snotpocalypse!

What are you working on now?

I’m working on book 2 of Snotlings!

Were any of the characters in the book inspired by people from your real life?

 I think there are a lot of characters that may have characteristics of people I know, but all of my characters have their own unique quirks.

Who was your favorite character to write? What about your least favorite?

I really enjoyed writing Lieutenant General. He’s one liners crack me up! And I can’t think of a least favourite.

What is your favorite passages/scenes in SNOTLINGS?

A lot of my favourite scenes are spoilers but I love the scene where the kids have decided to stick together because things are getting a little scary and they decide to let Jackson’s mum into the room … even though they probably shouldn’t! It ends up with Jackson’s mum knocking them down the stairs because she’s trying to pick the kids noses. It makes me laugh because Jackson’s mum hates things like boogers and farts and she would be horrified if she knew what she was doing!

What kind of research did you have to do for the story?

I did so much research! Mostly on the ears nose and throat. I didn’t know much about this part of the body. When I learnt that the ears and nose were connected it allowed me to send my two snotlings Crust and Goober to warn Jackson of the danger he was in. I also had to research what the snotlings and germs looked like. But I was lucky, my illustrator came up with some awesome characters! 

What inspired you to write middle grade?

Growing up with my brother inspired me to write middle grade. I was a lot older than him and growing up together was the light of my life. Primary school aged children are so outgoing, silly, funny and gross! My brother loved books (much more than me) and the only reason I am an author today is because of the story Snotlings. This story haunted me to write it and if I didn’t have my brother picking his nose all the time, I don’t think I would have come up with the idea.

All Saints – Never Ever. So catchy haha.

Thanks so much Tarryn for answering my questions! I can’t wait for everyone to read SNOTLINGS!

About Tarryn Mallick:

I became a writer because I had a story to tell. A story about snot! It may seem strange to write a book about boogers, but growing up, my little brother tormented me with his snot every… single… day!

I got my degree in Creative and Professional Writing and studied numerous courses and books, applying everything I had learnt to my book. It took me a short six years and now Snotlings is nearly ready to be shared with everyone.

To know that families around the world will squish together in bed and read my story and laugh- as I did with my Mum and brother- brings me so much happiness!
