The USA author tour began in New York travelling 24 hours from Australia -arriving by jet, travelling by train into upstate New York , being driven around by the wonderful Kane Miller Books /Usborne consultants – to speak to 1000s of kids, teachers in schools and libraries.

The kids were faI AM JACK on author tour USAbulous sharing their thoughts, sending cards and more.

I ended my US author tour with another 24 hour flight home to wake up early for  a wonderful skype session from my study in Sydney with St Joseph Community School Iowa.

I LOVE the kids of the USA and thankyou for loving my I Am Jack books!




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.
