First Clever Cats of 2013

The Clever Cats Book Club is my first release for 2013. I’ve always loved the Aussie Bites series of books for younger readers. It’s taken me way too long to write one. Sometimes small books can present interesting challenges.

The Clever Cats Book Club evolved from listening to one of my aunts talk about a book club that she started when she was at school. I wish I’d thought to start a book club when I was a kid. I’m a member of two book clubs now and the members of those book clubs include some of my closest friends. Book clubs are s a great way to strengthen friendships and to share the love of books.

The Clever Cats Book Club is illustrated by a very wonderful young artist who just happens to be my second cousin, Florence Boyd.  Florence has also done the illustrations for my upcoming August 2013 release, The Four Seasons of Lucy McKenzie.

Kirsty is an Australian author of books for children and young adults.

“Every adult was once a child and the child inside them never completely disappears.”
