Meet The Author: Neil Gaiman on his most personal novel yet

17 June 2013 Last updated at 17:17 BST

Neil Gaiman has written comics, adult novels and even episodes of Doctor Who, but the best-selling author reckons his latest book is his most personal yet.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane follows a seven-year-old protagonist, but its creator says it is definitely not a children's book.

Gaiman explained why to the BBC's Nick Higham.
