For many years, getting published has seemed as difficult as finding a basket of baby unicorns (how cute would that be?!). But after a long road...my first book will soon be published!
THERE IS NO MAGIC IN THIS BOOK will venture out into the world on 5 November 2020 with Walker Books. It's a picture book, illustrated by the enormously talented Sophie Beer (isn't her artwork exquisite?), and is perfect for kids aged 3-6 years.
So how tricky has this journey been? Well, I have always written stories and plays in one form or another since I was a kid, but I started writing more seriously back in 2005. I mostly wrote Young Adult manuscripts back then. After I had my daughters, I was immersed in the wonderful world of picture books and so I began to write my own. And they are so much fun!
This particular story began life a few years ago, then was championed by my wonderful agent, Catherine Drayton of Inkwell Management and published by Walker Books. I am so excited to see it emerge out into the world and be enjoyed by children and families around Australia New Zealand and beyond!
