St Ursula’s College Kingsgrove LOVE music and books

Had a fantastic time with over a hundred St Ursula ‘s girls. They  are enthusiastic and love music.

They wanted to know all about TORY and the music industry. They love Tory’s songs being part of our novel ‘That’s Why I Wrote This Song’.

Girls wanted to know how to get into the music industry. I told them it was about loving music, but also about getting to know people –

doing work experience at the music stations, magazines, music marketing companies.

 Tory works in music now for SHOCK and they have huge bands.

  Some of the bands she’s worked with include – but there are heaps more – 50 cents, Green Day, Chemical Romance:-

Check out TORY on my website: –

and my youtube channel to see the video clips of her songs – Psycho Dad and I Wanna Be Found:-

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.
