One Book, One School

This year for Book Week, Christmas Island District High School gave every student a copy of my new book, Our Country – Ancient Wonders. What a fab literary initiative!


Somerset Storyfest Festival

I’ve just returned from a two-week book tour in Queensland which included an invitation to present at the Somerset Storyfest A highlight was when I got to MC the sliming of my wife (and illustrator) Frané Lessac. It was all for a very good cause. Students at the school worked hard to raise money for Room to Read. Well done to them and well done to Frané and everyone who volunteered to be slimed.

Upcoming Tours

I’ll be traveling all over Australia in the next few months. I’ll be visiting schools in regional WA (Kalgoorlie and Albany) and will be in Victoria and New South Wales for Children’s Book Week. Hope to see you on my upcoming travels!
