Welcome to the new year, everyone! I must say that I’m always glad to find myself on the ‘other side’ of the silly season.
I’ve had a lovely break in the karri and marri forest in southern WA with my family and am really excited to get into a couple of big writing projects in 2016 – one novel for kids and one for adults.
But before the hard work gets underway I’d like to say a huge thank you to all the schoolteachers, librarians and readers, and the festival and writing-centre peeps who invited me into their spaces in 2015. Without your support I’d struggle to remember why I write. If I seem enthusiastic when I meet you, it’s because your enthusiasm makes me that way! THANK YOU!
In between some serious writing in 2016, I have school, library and festival bookings in Perth, Mandurah, Karratha, Katanning, Balingup and Busselton in WA, and Mackay and Melbourne. And I can’t wait! Please use the contact page if you would like me to come to your school or library – I will do what I can to make it possible.
