My new book – How To Get To Rio is out now. This story and The Call of the Wild are part of the  Choose Your Own Ever After series, where the reader gets to decide how the story goes.

How To Get To Rio

Schoolgirl Kitty McLean has to choose between going camping with her best friends or going to an exclusive beach resort with popular-girl Persephone. She wants to spend the holidays with her besties but she also wants to get to know Persephone better. The beach holiday has an added attraction – a cute guy called Rio, is going to be there!

The inspiration: The story was inspired by a family trip to Carnarvon Gorge in central Queensland. We went with two other families, so that meant a pile of kids, endless games of capture the flag, lots of slime fights,  and loads and loads of fun. You can read all about it here.
