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.

    Dear Susanne,

    Sorry that I haven’t kept in touch for the past while! I have been really busy.!.

    Do you have any tips for starting books? Sometimes when I start a book I have really good ideas for the start, but then I write them and stop writing that story because I don’t have any ideas for the rest of the story.

    Will you be speaking at the Tamar Valley Writers Festival this weekend?? I ask because I might be going there this weekend. If you are, do you mind to tell me when and where?

    Kind Regards from a happy fan

    Hi Denae

    My tip is to have an idea and then keep asking Why? What? How? That will help you continue. So with I AM JACK – the idea is BULLYING. The questions are why was he bullied What happened? How did her react? …… until the final question – did he win against it? Lose? Or what?

    I was going to the Tamar Valey Writers festival but couldn’t make it – wonderful authors Deborah Abela, Belidna Murrell, Jacqueline Harvey and others will be there. Tell them you know me and say hello.

    Keep reading and writing – it bring wisdom.
