It has been such an exciting month. I recently returned from a weekend in Tasmania where first I met with fellow children’s authors and illustrators from SCBWI Hobart (Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators). This is a wonderful organisation and I encourage kids’ authors and illustrators to join their local chapter if they have not already done so. The following day was spent at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery for the Lift Off! Festival where I talked with kids about using their imaginations, about writing and drawing, and my latest novel Zadie Ma and the Dog Who Chased the Moon. I also signed quite a number of books at the lovely Hobart Bookshop in Salamanca Place.
