Kids Who Did

Twenty years ago, ‘Tough Stuff – true stories of kids and courage’ was published by Allen & Unwin. It was a book straight from my heart. To celebrate its 20th anniversary, I’ve rewritten the entire book, updating old stories, adding 11 new stories and a new chapter. Tough Stuff was so loved that it never went out of print and sold tens of thousands of copies in its lifespan. Very excited that this brand new extended version – retitled as Kids Who Did will be published in April 2019.

On the trail of Jessie Traill

Jessie Traill influenced the creation of two of my novels; The Year it All Ended and The Four Seasons of Lucy McKenzie.  Check out my blogpost about Jessie and the trail of her letters, postcards and paintings that are held in Australian libraries and galleries.
