Just when you thought that was it… there’s more! The annual All Saints’ College Festival of Young Adult and Children’s Literature is on again! And you guessed it, lil ole me is a presenter!
You can see me at various times from Wednesday 21 March through to Friday 23 March. I will be flogging that old chestnut Destroying Avalon again! But I do hope to include things about writing in general- especially writing Young Adult Fiction. (I’ll be dusting off the notes I used at PIAF!!)
It should be fun. I love a good festival, I do.
I am an Australian author of YA and Adult fiction. My first novel Destroying Avalon (2006) published by Fremantle Arts Centre Press is about cyber bullying.My second novel In Ecstasy (2008) is about friendship and drugs. My third novel Beautiful Monster (2010)focuses on body image . Crashing Down (2014) was my fourth novel and is about teen pregnancy. Saving Jazz (2016), is a novel that looks the world of social media and what happens when your mistakes go viral. In 2019 I released a non-fiction book The (mostly) English Teachers' Survival Guide To Marking which outlines a coded marking and feed-forward system, designed to save teachers about 50% of their marking time. My first adult book Double Lives is being released in 2022.
I live in Western Australia, with my husband, two daughters, a cat and two Maltese Shih Tzus.
