About Me

My photo
Hi, welcome to my blog. I'm a writer of poetry, prose and plays but my best known work is children's fiction. My most popular books are the Selby series and the Emily Eyefinger series. This blog is intended as an entertaining collection of thoughts and pictures from here in Australia and from my travels in other parts of the world. I hope you enjoy it. (For more information have a look at my website.)

Book Week

Book Week for many authors is not just a week - it's usually many more because we get asked to speak at a lot of schools and libraries. This year I was busy for about six weeks and I still have more schools to visit.

I was invited up to Port Macquarie and talked in some schools there and in Kempsey. I had a great time meeting the kids and reading from my Selby and Emily Eyefinger books. It was also a chance to read from my latest book of funny poems, My Sister has a Big Black Beard.
Here I am at a little country school near Kempsey. With me are Georgia and Samuel, a couple of great school captains.

Below I'm talking to kids and parents at the Port Macquarie Public Library. I hope you enjoyed Book Week at your school.
