Yes it’s been ages hey? I’ve written Thai-riffic! 2, dubbed More Thai-riffic! and sent it off to Penguin…so it’s on to the next mission, editing Punchlines.

Last week I went to my first KOALA awards ceremony at Casula Powerhouse. There was 15 of the finest authors this side of NSW with special guest authors such as Andy Griffiths making the trek up north…

Being the 25th anniversary, there was a party theme and the kids made us hats. Some were more practical than others but they were all so cool! I was so glad to be part of the whole thing-and to have kids love Thai-riffic! means a lot to me, kid choice awards are what’s it all about!

Kim Gamble did a lovely Tashi artwork…and he will be our special guest,along with Anne Fineberg for the CBCA Northern Sydney Sub Branch Christmas Party on November 30th! Lock it in your diaries.

I’m off to Tassie this week for more cHEwY fun, flying on Virgin Australia today and as for flying back to Sydney…um hopefully I’ll be able to make it on Thursday’s Darren Hayes concert on that night! Grounded Kangaroo Syndrome hehe, ah wells it should be alright!

More updates soon!
