My best grown up friend Jacqueline Harvey spent an hour this morning talking to a publisher who is visiting Australia from Canada at the Sydney Writers' Festival. Her name is Patsy Aldana and she interviewed Jacqueline to talk about my adventures and lots of other things about writing. Jacqueline told me that she had a great time and really enjoyed meeting lots of new friends.
I'm having a busy week too - helping Jacqueline finish off writing my fourth adventure, Alice-Miranda At Sea. It will be in the shops on the 1st of August.
Have a great week!
