As you may have gathered, I am also a published writer of books for young adults. I was a winner of the Varuna Award for Manuscript Development, and each of my books has been named by the Children’s Book Council of Australia as a notable book in the year it was published.
My first book, Leaving Jetty Road, was published in 2004 in Australia. That edition (pictured above) is now out of print, but it was also published by Random House in the US.
Guess what? I’m working on a third novel. At this stage, all I can say is that it is a story about a family who are haunted by the sea. The working title is The Silver Sea. Watch this space for more details!
