Butterflies goes to Tulsa Oklahoma

Butterflies goes to Tulsa Oklahoma

National year of Reading 2012, www.love2read.orgGuess where I’m going?

Tulsa USA Oklahoma – oil, Tornado Alley, home of the Creek tribes.

Tallasi ‘old town’ – is named from the Creek Indian language.

Why am I going there?

To the mega sales conference for Kane Miller my USA publisher  to talk to 600 sales representatives  about ‘Butterflies’.

I’m really proud it was included in the Banks Street College Best YA Books of 2012.

If you’re out and about in Tulsa – come along and say hello – I’ll be there 21-23rd June.

I'm a writer committed to kids in particular. Adults are good too. Want to bring hope through story to my readers. Awarded an Order of Australia, Lady Cutler Award and a Lifetime International Award for Literacy for my body of work, spreading literacy is really important. I'm head of SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand, patron of Monkey Baa Theatre, Ambassador for the Premier's Reading Challenge, Writer Ambassador for Room to Read ... among other roles. I also love heritage and adapting to enhance the lives of people today, which is why I restored The Hughenden Hotel 1870s and The Residences Centennial Park - the only homes in the parklands which are open now for accommodation, events and lots of nature.
