I really enjoyed reading Cyclone Christmas (published by Sunshine Books) at the 2017 Tasmanian Writers’ and Readers’ Festival on the weekend. Thanks to Soncha and her team for organising the Book Nook, and to Robyn for this photo of me in the ‘big chair’.

Thanks to everyone involved, and looking forward to the next festival in two years’ time!

I’m really looking forward to reading from Cyclone Christmas at the Tasmanian Writers’ Festival in September!
It was wonderful to have the opportunity to attend the Children’s Book of the Year Awards announcements at Government House in Hobart on Friday, followed by the celebratory dinner at the Hobart Convention Centre overlooking the water.
Congratulations to all the winners and short-listees!
