She is the author of 14 novels for younger readers and a picture book, THE SOUND OF THE SEA, which was awarded Honour Book in the 2006 Children’s Book Council Awards. Her bestselling Alice-Miranda series centres on the life of Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones, a perpetually positive and determined seven year old who takes herself off to boarding school because it appeals to her sense of adventure. The first book in the series, Alice-Miranda At School was released in Australia in February 2010 with Alice-Miranda On Holiday, Alice-Miranda Takes the Lead, Alice-Miranda At Sea, Alice-Miranda In New York, Alice-Miranda Shows the Way and Alice-Miranda In Paris following at six month intervals.

Busy days and new books in Australia and the United States!

Dear Friends,

I have been so excited to meet lots of new friends in the past month.  From Melbourne and Geelong to Perth and Albany and lots of children in Sydney too.  My best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey has been travelling and talking a lot too, so she's looking forward to a little bit of time at home until we head off on some more adventures to Alice Springs, Adelaide, the Melbourne Writers' Festival and later this year we are going back to Singapore and England.  It's busy being a writer and of course there are stories to be written too.

I can't wait to be able to show you the covers of my next two books, which are going to be out in Australia in September this year.  They're not quite ready yet so you'll have to check back in a little while but in the mean time, Clementine Rose has a new story coming in May (just a couple of weeks away).  The cover is gorgeous and it's called Clementine Rose and the Perfect Present.  I think Lavender looks adorable in her jumper which matches Clementine's.  I hope that lots of my friends are becoming her friends too.

I'm also really excited that my American friends are finally about to get a new book too.  It's called Alice-Miranda Takes the Stage (it was called Alice-Miranda Takes the Lead in Australia and England)  It's out on the 14th May.  I hope they love it.
Today I'm helping with a new story, so I'd better get a move on.  Wherever you are in the world, have a great day.
Lots of love,
Alice-Miranda xx
