Fantastic Sefton High School Love Their Book Club

Fantastic Sefton High School Love Their Book Club

I first met Sefton High students at Bookfeast for an author-student lunch. Loved the students because they are smart, searching for answers and committed to books and their book club.

At Bookfeast this year, I didn’t sit with Sefton High School, but I met their librarian and decided that I’d visit the school and kids.

The Sefton High students are really engrossed in writing, enjoy the books I write and emotional pull of story. They loved the video clip that is part of my novel ‘That’s Why I Wrote This Song.’ You can hear ‘Psycho Dad’ on youtube.

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.
