Touched by comments that all the authors received. I want to share a few written in my card:-

Thankyou for speaking with us. You’re a great inspiration for me. And I love your books!  Mischa

Thankyou so much! I love being around people who love to write.  Ash

Thankyou too – and thankyou to Jane Taylor of the Children’s Book Council Australia who did all the hard work organising it.

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.
