I write books for children and young adults. Sometimes I write short stories for grown-ups.

Digital Book Launch – ‘The Year the Maps Changed’

Digital Book Launch – ‘The Year the Maps Changed’

OzAuthors Online came into being following the cancellations of author events due to Covid-19. Rather than idly sit by in lockdown, members of the Australian literary community decided that the long-time friend of authors – the internet – could be put to work once more. Seeking to find a way to offer some alternatives to cancelled book launches, author appearances, and panels.

This Digital OAO launch is going to direct sales to Farrells Bookshop in Mornington, and Better Read Than Dead in Sydney. And it will feature a Q&A with myself, and #LoveOzYA author Jenna Guillaume – of What I Like About Me fame! It won’t be *quite* the same as an in-store launch, but we’ll work to make it as special and unique as we can, and make the most of the new opportunities OAO launches are affording creatives and indie-bookshops during these surreal times.

ONLINE Melbourne Book Launch – ‘The Year the Maps Changed’

ONLINE Melbourne Book Launch – ‘The Year the Maps Changed’

It’s not going to be ~the same~ launch that we’d planned on months ago, BUT it is a launch and it’s going to be me and Carly Findlay in-conversation, partnering with Readings Books and that’s what matters!

So please; join us for the Melbourne Readings (online!) launch of The Year the Maps Changed; a middle-grade coming-of-age story inspired by true events in Australia’s not-too-distant past.

Writer, speaker, appearance activist, and my dear friend Carly Findlay will be launching me!

* Free, but bookings required
