I’ll be spending March on the road, talking about books, creative writing and how to bust your grandparents out of a nursing home. I’m taking my new book My Life & Other Massive Mistakes (out 2 March) and book trailer to schools around Australia: Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane.
My publisher at Random House reckons it’s 30 bookstores, 80 schools, 700 teachers and 30,000 kids, all in four weeks. Fun and frightening at the same time.

It tells the story of pensioner Cliff Weekly’s daring escape from Kings Bay Nursing Home.
I’ll also be visiting public libraries and Melbourne Children’s Book Festival (with Shaun Tan, Gabrielle Wang, Andy Griffiths and Oliver Phommavanh). Keep an eye on the Events page for more details.
Auf wiedersehen (NB: Not touring Germany. I just like the way ‘Auf wiedersehen’ rolls off the keyboard. Give it a shot.)
