How wonderful. My short story,What goes round . . . made it to page 312 in Ford Street's new, exciting anthology, Trust Me Too, in which there are 58 creators, writing in every genre imaginable - illustrations as well!

The Melbourne launch was too good an opportunity to miss. One was held at Scotch College, Hawthorn and the other at Princes Hill Secondary College at Carlton North. I flew over from Adelaide and, during my four day stay, was also able to meet up with publishers, illustrators, my agent and writer colleagues and friends. A great occasion for a great book.

Ned Kelly's head - and my book

Ned Kelly's head may still be missing but my forthcoming, non-fiction picture book, called Meet Ned Kelly,  is well and truly found and identified.

A commission from Random House, the book will be one of a series for 5 - 7 year olds and is due for release next February, 2013.

It's a stunner of a cover, don't you think?

Thanks Matt Abram!
