It was a great thrill for me to visit the offices of Wendy Pye/Sunshine Books in Auckland, NZ, last week. I’ve had a relationship with them since last century, literally, when we initially negotiated the publication of the first edition of Cyclone Christmas. Since then, they have published another of my books, Block City, and a second edition of Cyclone Christmas.
It was interesting to put some faces to names and to see where all the action takes place. Their book display area is bright, colourful and cheery, and it was interesting to see all their current titles together in one place including my brother Evan’s Bottle from the Sea.
Thanks managing editor Charyn Jones for enabling my visit and being so welcoming.
