One of the great benefits of subscribing to my monthly eNews is that I only seem to send it out twice a year, so there's no inbox clogging!


In this edition, there's news on my new book, new book trailer, a crime-mystery novel coming in May, a chance to win a full set of the My Life books and some tips for making 2017 the best Book Week ever.



New Book: My Life & Other Weaponised Muffins

My new book My Life & Other Weaponised Muffins (illustrated by the amazing Gus Gordon) has just been released. It’s the fifth book in the My Life series of weird-funny-sometimes-gross short stories.

Have you ever been trapped inside a runaway car? Have you sold head lice for fun and profit? Is there someone in your class who will stop at nothing to kiss you?

You can order a signed copy and link directly to online bookstores here.

New Video Book Trailer!

I love making videos to bring my books to life for kids. But this time I was ambushed by a pesky kid wielding raspberry and custard muffins. The results were not pretty.

You can see the trailer and go behind-the-scenes on the video shoot here.

And if you'd like to make your own trailer, check out my post: How to Make a Book Trailer. It contains everything I've learnt from years of trailer-making.


Top 10 Tips to Make Children's Book Week 2017 the Best Ever

The most popular post on my website right now is about Book Week 2017 and my ideas for making it the best Book Week ever. I hope you get a chance to take a peek.

Big congrats to the authors of all the CBCA Notable Books, too!

The Fall is Coming

My new crime-mystery-thriller novel The Fall is coming 29 May 2017. It's a follow-up (but not a sequel) to my previous novel Two Wolves.

You can watch a video about the book, hear what inspired it, go behind-the-scenes on the writing, listen to the soundtrack and pre-order copies here.

I'm hoping that Two Wolves readers will really enjoy it.


To celebrate the launch of my new book My Life & Other Weaponised Muffins I'm giving away a complete signed set of the My Life book series and a bunch of fun stuff for kids to prank their friends with (or for teachers to prank their students).

Keep an eye on my InstagramFacebook or Twitter feed over the next couple of days for details on how to win!
