The anthology Rich and Rare is a feast of stories poetry and illustration - Shaun Tan's cover is amazing - worth holding this book just for that. Such a privilege to have a story in this Ford Street Publishing title - with some of Australia's most loved creators - Deborah Abela, Michael Gerard Bauer, Meredith Costain, Libby Hathorn, Hazel Edwards, Judith Tossell, Gabriell Wang .... and more and more. Launching in Sydney on Thursday 26th at Beecroft Bookshop 4.30 p.m. - come along

The privilege of relating with wonderful young creative writers in Australia's bush alongside the Hawkesbury River with outstanding authors Richard Tulloch, Simon French, Pamela Freeman and environmental leaders is part of the life of being a children's author. Very special.
We are so fortunate every year to entice some brilliant children's authors out to Brewongle to pass on their talents to the students. This year is no exception with Suzanne Gervay sharing her compa...

Young adult fiction is tough, confronting, real. I loved this feisty chat between me and 2 other YA authors Stewart Ross and Kimberley Little - thankyou Wendy Dunn author and academic for reprinting this.

I had the pleasure of speaking to students in the Education Faculty. Their open mindedness and willingness to embrace international books was inspiring. As an Australian author, it was wonderful sharing my I AM JACK' and anti bullying through literature with them. Hosted by Professor Ernest Bond and Patricia Dean, I enjoyed this university where there was a real commitment to raising literacy rates, promotion of international books, excellence and literature which opens discussion on the environment. I loved the university being so integrated into the town of Salisbury. it was a beautiful campus and a welcoming town.
