I am very excited to announce that ‘Friday Barnes, Girl Detective’ will go on sale in the US and Canada in January 2016. This is the US cover by the very talented Phil Gosier. I’ll be travelling to New York and LA to promote the release so if you know anyone who would like me to visit their school or bookstore in those areas tell them to get in touch.
The big ABIA (Australian Book Industry Awards) night is coming up next week. So yet again I shall have to get out my posh frock.
If you want and autographed copy of one of my books, I just popped in to Dymocks Collins St and signed all their stock. Ask for Anna in the children’s department and she’ll show you where they are.
