2 year old Jessica's picture

Jessica and her Poppy

I believe the highest compliment that can be paid to an author is to hear that people love your book.
This week I received a lovely note, Jessica's competition entry and some photos from 2 year old Jessica's Mum.
Jessica's Mum had bought a copy of 'Poppy Tried to Sleep' and she wrote to tell me that she and Jessica both "love the colourful story and gorgeous pictures!" and that "Poppy is just like Jessica's very own Poppy who lives on a farm in SA."
A great big thankyou to Jessica, her Mum and her Poppy!

Thankyou Canberra

Thankyou to all the wonderful people in Canberra who gave me such a warm reception! I had a great time and met lots of fantastic children from various schools and the staff members were very welcoming and helpful. Thankyou everyone!
A special thankyou for the lovely emails I received - I love to hear from you!!

I am now really looking forward to going back again for the launch of "Poppy and the Bushfire" on the 3rd July. I do hope you can join me there...
If you would like to come along don't forget to let Dymocks know so they can reserve a spot for you.
Also, if you are entering the colouring competition try to get your entry in as soon as you can so that it can be displayed outside the shop.
See you there!
