Mac Slater On Stage

This week, my character Mac Slater will be brought alive onstage courtesy of the State Library of Victoria. They're working with a director and actors to bring scenes from the second Mac book, I NY to the stage. I can't wait to see what they do with it. I love it when someone takes something you've created and puts their own spin on it. And I'm looking forward to spending a couple of days in Melbourne, too. It's a fine, fine city and I always get inspired.

I'll be meeting with the producer and animators bringing my Nit Boy series to life while I'm down there, too, so it should be a fun adventure. We're talking about a background look for the animation so I'm sourcing lots of visual references right now over at

And I've just blogged Crocodile Tears the eighth Alex Rider book by Anthony Horowitzat . To WIN a copy, just leave a comment on the post.

Nit Boy Art Exhibition

The Teacher-Librarian at St Joseph's, Bracken Ridge, in Brisbane recently read my first Nit Boy book, Lift Off! to her students without being shown the cover. Students were then asked to create their own covers based on the story they'd heard. I thought there was some amazing, hilarious and tasty work in there and I wanted to share it, so welcome to the exhibition. I only wish I had time to scan them all! Perhaps there'll be a sequel?

Oh, and here are a couple of recent kids' reviews of the Nit Boy books:
Nit Boy 1: Lift Off!
Nit Boy 2: Bug Out!
