Books for Easter, too

IMG_8600A big thank you to my friend and fellow writer, Sherryl Caulfield for a wonderful Easter gift – a copy of her new novel, Come Full Circle. The story is the third in the Iceberg Trilogy and promises a raw conclusion to the series, as a woman goes on a journey discover the missing pieces of her life. Congratulations on your latest achievement, Sherryl. Can’t wait to get stuck into it!

Big congrats also to my former neighbour and long-time friend, the mega-talented artist, Megan Forward, who’s just about to launch her first picture book  A Patch from Scratch.

Looking forward to catching up with Megan and seeing her work at Avid Reader!

I’m also excited about the Queensland launch of Rich & Rare – a collection of short stories and illustrations from almost 50 great Australian writers and artists. The book includes pieces from Michael Gerard Bauer, Gary Crew, Justin D’Ath, Scot Gardner, Kerry Greenwood, Libby Hathorn, Leigh Hobbs, Sofie Laguna, Kirsty Murray, James Roy, Shaun Tan and Gabrielle Wang. I have a story of intrigue in the cane fields of North Queensland, called Sugar is Sweet in the collection.
