Meeting Readers!

Recent trip to the Gold Coast!

Magic Fish Dreaming

It was so joyful to meet readers of books I have put heart and soul into. Even though I did the best I could, it didn’t quite feel real launching Illuminations online.

It was a tough week in the lead up to the Gold Coast visit, as a reading event I was looking forward to was cancelled, and another trip to share the book was also proving impossible to organise.

But now having been out into the community to sell Illuminations (and other books), it feels real and my spirits are lifted.

People stopped throughout the day to chat and sometimes buy the books. It was wonderful readers are still attracted to Magic Fish Dreaming, and many copies were purchased by grandparents.

A massive thankyou to Big B books, for hosting me outside their shop.

Thank you to every single one of you who stopped, encouraged, purchased books, and shared…

Sprout Sunday Readings

Magic Fish Dreaming

June Reading ‘Tawny’

A big thank you from Renee and June for all those families who braved the weather to reach the beautiful  venue, and stopped to listen to story and poetry about nature and Queensland and to the Sprout Sunday organisers, Gold Coast Green Living and Botanical Bazaar, and venue Host, the Surfer’s Paradise Golf Club, for having us at this day.

The indoor fairy lights and the hall of the Surfers Paradise Gold Club were quite magical, and we were happy that the farmers received their rain and thankful it cleared up a bit later in the day.

A special thank you to the wonderful young people  who helped read the dialogue poems and  show many of the animals featured in the Discovering Magic poem.

We hope that all those people who brought copies of the book will love them and would love it if they let others…
