Night Swimming is a CBCA Notable! Somerset Celebration of Literature! Podcast!

Monday, March 12, 2018

Oh. Hi. I did not, in fact, forget I had a blog. Honest. I just haven't had a chance to blog in so very long. I've been having a rather busy (but excellent!) time visiting schools and writing a thesis and working on my novel. I do have some posts on the way (I have had a chance to read for fun again - and there are a number of wonderful YA titles I want to tell you all about) but for now I'm just quickly popping in to let you know what's been happening.

(I hope you have been well and 2018 is treating you kindly. Yes, I know it's March! What is with time?)

So here are a few exciting updates!

First of all, I am beyond thrilled that NIGHT SWIMMING is a CBCA Notable for Older Readers! It's an extraordinary list with a lot of fabulous titles on it (check it out here) and I feel very honoured to be featured alongside such talent!

This is my first CBCA Notable and it's a pretty special feeling!

Secondly, I will be appearing at the Somerset Celebration of Literature on the Gold Coast this week! It's an awesome festival and I've had such fun attending in the past. I'll be presenting a number school sessions, and I'll also be appearing on a panel on Storytelling in the Electronic World. For more info, check out Somerset's festival guide.

Finally (for now!), I recently appeared on the Words and Nerds podcast. You can listen to me chat about NIGHT SWIMMING and developing unique characters here.

I think that's it. I hope to have lots more cool stuff to tell you soon. (I post a little more often on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, so do follow over there if you fancy!)
