I am so excited that this month Girl Power magazine (one of my favourites) have dedicated their book club to my latest adventure, Alice-Miranda In New York (click the link above to go to the Book Club). There is an interview with my best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey and she also wrote them a story about a dark and stormy night...
Last week Jacqueline had the pleasure of visiting St Margaret's School and Clayfield College in Brisbane and meeting a whole lot of new friends with the Moreton Bay Public Libraries. Then it was off to Somerset College on the Gold Coast for the Celebration of Literature and I know that Jacqueline met lots of my friends there too. She got to spend time with some of her writing friends; James Roy, Karen Brooks, Felice Arena, Leigh Hobbs, Susanne Gervay, Oliver Pommovanh, Sorrel Wilby; Cath Crowley; Georgia Blain, Deborah Abela, Frances Watts and Lili Wilkinson to name just a few.
So it has been another very busy week - and this week she's off to Canberra on Monday and Melbourne after that. I can't wait to see who she meets.
Lots of love,
