Covers

The Littlest Bushranger is an epic, swashbuckling story about Jack, who is left at home with his faithful dog Hector when his sister Lil starts going to school. But their ordinary day is about to be transformed when a fiendish, oddly bird-shaped outlaw suddenly descends on them. Booktopia

A Year with Marmalade is a charming book about about losing friends and making new ones. Set against a beautiful backdrop of the turning seasons, this story of transition reminds us that change, while constant, is not always a bad thing.

KIDLITVIC MEET THE PUBLISHERS

 

Many of you will know that I’m fortunate to be part of the KidLitVic Meet the Publishers team. The aim behind the conference is to have an event in Melbourne where YA and children’s writers and illustrators have the opportunity to meet publishers, editors and agents.
