as I help launch two #LoveOzYA books by two (incredibly talented) writer
friends into the universe.  Summer Skin ,...

#LoveOzYAbookclub – January 2016 Book Discussion Post: Green Valentine (Lili Wilkinson)
So here we are – we’ve reached the moment of truth!  What did you think of Green Valentine ?  I admit to being a little biased with this
book, cos I launched it when it was released…but then I admitted to bias with
our last book too, so I think I should jus...

nearly Christmas Day as I’m writing this. 
And I’m not organised, except for camping – we’re leaving on our annual
family camping trip on Boxing Day, which I’m excited about because it means a
nice long time out, and lots of writing done on a camp chai...

Literary community: the golden thread
I found my literary community online on Twitter. It was 2012, or maybe 2013, I’m not exactly sure – basically
it was such a short while after I’d signed my first publishing contract (with Allen

#LoveOzYAbookclub: Author Q&A – Amie Kaufman & Jay Kristoff (Illuminae)
