Just laid eyes for the first time on the brand-new Ella and Olivia hardback treasury, due to hit shelves in September! It's called SISTER'S DAY OUT STORIES - and features 6 totally NEW stories in full colour for dedicated fans of E&O. I know you'll love it.
Fabulous news! The Ella and Olivia Treasury: Best Friends Stories has been shortlisted for Book of the Year for ages 5-8 from Speech Pathology Australia! I'm in such good company and really proud to be shortlisted. We'll find out in November how the book fares! The books are judged by a panel of experts in oral language and literacy development.
In July I also attended the fabulous Children's and YA festival at the NSW Writers' Centre. I was on a panel called 'Girl Power' together with authors Laura Sieveking, Belinda Murrell and chaired by the awesome Jacqueline Harvey. Thanks for coming out to listen!
Great news! Ella and Olivia: Zoo Rescue has been shortlisted for a YABBA award for fiction for younger readers! This wonderful award is judged by the students of NSW, Victoria and the Northern Territory. Thanks gang! So chuffed to be in such wonderful company!
Covergirl time! Chuffed to be on the front cover of this term's Book Catalogue from Books In Homes - a wonderful charity delivering books to deserving kids across the nation.
