Guess who I had lunch with? The brilliant Rt Hon Julie Bishop (former deputy Prime Minister) - so impressive. Her position is that we remain true to our Australian voice and not bend to Chinese will or US will - but to navigate carefully.
Obviously we weren't ready for a female PM, after we had Julia Gillard - a PM who brought in the Royal Commission on sexual abuse of children, who was slammed for her body shape - really?

Oops you caught me!!! Stripping bare for a night of the music & story of the violin travelling from Transylvania 1918 to Australia today - by violin virtuoso Daniel Weltlinger . It captures some of my story as well as Daniel's too, in my new novel and was deeply moving. What a night In the underground music warehouse in the grungy Leonard Cohen -type hideway of artists and musicians.

'My son was a victim of a false gay rumour at a school camp … by a very gifted boy with his peer group which spread through his year. Why? My son was different-poor social skills but has a good sense of humour. They studied "I am Jack" this term. My son's teacher told me that Patrick finished the book before the class did. Participated in the class discussion which he is normally very shy in doing all because he identified with Jack.
Thank you Lisa (Patrick’s mother).'
I get emails like this frequently. I wrote 'I Am Jack' (and the JACK books) for Patrick and all kids, so they have a voice and they matter. Story gives them a voice. My 'I Am Jack' wraps his arms around kids so they've got a safe space and know they are not alone and that they are worth everything!.
Thankyou Sonia Bestulic Childrens Author for your podcast on bullying because kids matter.

Sometimes, It can be very difficult to notice the problem as parents don’t always see what their child goes through at school.
Join me today as I chat with Susanne Gervay, one of Australia’s most esteemed children’s book authors as she has so much wisdom and personal experience to share on this topic.
You can also get a chance to receive a gift copy of Susanne's book "I Am Jack", that courageously and effectively tackled the sensitive topic of bullying. Tune in!

You have to LOVE kids. This is the best ever pair of purple underpants owned by ‘I am Jack’ ‘s Nanna. The wonderful girl who made it, took her mother on a massive search to find glitter glue that glows in the dark. It touched me that the ‘I Am Jack’ books are real to kids.

I could hardly breathe. The Concert Hall pulsated with music, poetry, philosophy, wisdom, despair and Halleluyah. Leonard Cohen's warning - in his magnificent song - 'you want it darker' - is challenged by the young people marching to save our world.
Magnified, sanctified, be thy holy name
Vilified, crucified, in the human frame
A million candles burning for the love that never came
You want it darker
We kill the flame
(You want it darker' - Leonard Cohen)
Monsieur Camembert's Leonard Cohen Show was sold out last night at City Recital Hall .Triple ARIA-winning Monsieur Camembert reaches into the soul, heart and the deepest of humanity. We have to be better than this.
You can see Monsieur Camembert at the Camelot Lounge Marrickville in Sydney - a light into the magnificence of last night and the incredible Leonard Cohen.
Love to you Annette Guerry for inviting me to this soul-reaching amazingness!
