Somerset Lovin’

Hey ya!

I’m waiting at Gold Coast airport, ready to go home after a successful and fun Somerset festival. My last talk was in the marquee out the back, and if it was going to be hot and steamy, I was going to take off my shirt! I put that on Twitter and attracted some attention…well just to see if I was going to get in trouble haha…

But it was okay haha, I had a cool breeze as I had a loose last talk, it was fun and full of random choas!

After a relaxing arvo in the pool, we all went to the literary dinner. Here we are looking very nice and formal haha

The winner of the novella comp was announced…man those teen writers are just so good!!!! I mean, they are gifted and gonna go far if they keep it up. Mmmm, it gave me an idea for a story actually, about teen writers, more on that later haha

Sandy Mackinnon kept us entertained with his adventures in Europe, the accents were so funny and spot on. Classic stuff!

Neways, Somerset was paradise and I was blessed to come along…next stop is the Punchlines launch and Children Book Festival in Melbourne!
