Scene from videoclip of Psycho Dad
Scene from videoclip of Psycho Dad written by Tory Gervay with lyrics and music that are part of my novel ‘That’s Why I Wrote This Song’
Talking about music and story to teenagers was fantastic.
Where? What was it about?
Overlooking stunning Collaroy Beach on the Northern Beaches of Sydney – Home & Away TV material – with creative, funny, smart, funny and interested kids from Gosford High School and enthusiastic teachers, it was a writing-fest.
Who was leading it? Great authors and illustrators:-
Gus Gordon who illustrates quirky, clever, hilarious books including Jeni Mawter’s So Gross series, the best selling Undys series, the Puffin Baby books. I am hanging out for Gus’ picture book about Wendy the chicken – so cute and funny and brave. it’ll be out next year by Penguin Books.

Stephen Measday who took out time from his crazily busy days as a script writer for Hi Five and other TV and animation series. Smart Stephen. Everyone loves his Roger Bacon series – books about pigs with attitude. He’s working on a new funny science fiction series now.
John Larkin who is a hilarious writer for kids 8-12 years old. His books include Spaghetti Legs, Pizza Features and The Western Wildcats sunny stories about soccer. He’s writing his adult novel at the moment but I forgive him.
I spoke too about of course, ‘That’s Why I Wrote This Song’ and music and literature. Some of the kids were in bands and everyone was into music. Great energy and Great day.
