Camp Quality Ambassador!


I'm really proud to say that I was recently asked to become an ambassador for Camp Quality, the charity that puts a smile on the faces of young people affected by cancer throughout Australia and the world. 

They believe in Fun Therapy, which is something I'm a big believer in, too. I'll be visiting some camps and hopefully encouraging lots of creativity and imaginative storytelling. (I also have this secret hope that there might be flying foxes or go-karts involved.)

You can read my interview at the Camp Quality website here. Thanks CQ for all the good work that you do and here's hoping that I can help you create Big Happiness.

Get Into Nit Lit!


My new series Nit Boy has just hit Australian shelves. The first book is Lift Off! and the second is Bug Out! It's for anyone who's ever had nits or had to deal with nits. It's all about Lewis, the kid with the worst case of nits in world history and Ned, one of the nits who lives on his head. It features amazing illustrations by Heath McKenzie.

The Byron Bay launch happens at Byron Library, 4pm on 14 May 2009. The Sydney launch event is a round table session with a milkshake at Shearer's bookshop in Leichardt on Tuesday 19 May. Hope you can come along!

The Nit Boy competition with prizes including Wii games goes live on Monday at www.nitboy.com and, coming soon, is the 3D animated Nit Boy trailer by Peter Leary at Melbourne company, The Animators. Here's a sneak peek at the trailer below, a shot of one of the stars of Nit Boy - Ned, the nit.
