Mac Slater, Coolhunter Hits Shelves

Mac Slater, Coolhunter 1: The Rules of Cool is officially launched and on shelves Australia and New Zealand-wide. Author and actress, Judy Nunn (pictured here with me), launched the book to a receptive crowd at the recent Byron Bay Writer's Festival. The weather was perfect and we had a flying bike in the house, parachute hanging from ceiling. Flyke guy, Ed Gray, provided the three-wheeled flying machine and rumour has it that he flew home from the launch. My other sessions at the fest went smoothly, too. I loved the children's tent session where the audience and I brainstormed a pretty wild adventure for the third Mac Slater, Coolhunter book.
