As you may or may not know, my novel Being Here did not win the PM's Literary Award, but it was still fabulous to have been shortlisted. So my thoughts turned towards the completion of my next book, My Life As An Alphabet, which is currently at the printers and due for release early in 2013. I am excited by this as I had so much fun writing it. Check it out by clicking on the book cover.
I'm also busy writing FIVE new books. More information to follow.
Leah Cartwright is ninety-three years old. She's feisty, tartly amusing and senses that time is slipping away. Carly is sixteen, bold… and yet hesitant… and eager to interview Leah for her local history project. Slowly a relationship blossoms between this unlikely pair, as Leah revisits her past to share with Carly her unique coming-of-age story.
A free trip to the Northern Territory! Sounds good, thinks Marcus ('Mucus' to his sister Rose). But when his best friend Dylan joins the family holiday, mayhem is not far away.
