‘Premier’s Reading Challenge’ with Ambassadors Deb Abela, Susanne Gervay & Oliver Phommavanh

What a mega party – the 15th year of the NSW Premier’s Reading Challenge (PRC). Speaking to more than 40 schools and 1500 kids and teachers from Brisbane to Sydney to the Outback.

They had great questions and their favourite books included Tim Winton, Diary of a Wimpy Kid …. and of course Deb Abela’s Max Remy and my I Am Jack.

Love being an ambassador with my great friends and fellow  authors Deborah Abela & Oliver Phommavanh!!!

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.
