hot & sticky

Its International Women's Day and today in the mail (in the weird way that the universe does things sometimes) I got my 6 comp copies of Sticks McLennon, a little chapbook I penned and Blake Publishing published. Sticks is a book for boys that is full of girls. Its about Samson McLennon- a shy 12-year old who is forced to join his big sister's all-girl band, lead by the formidable Harriette.

Gold Star

This week I was thrilled to the back teeth to find out I was awarded one of 12 mentorships by the Australian Society of Authors in the picture book category.
