‘Friday Barnes 10, Undercover’ goes on sale

If you don’t want to do the maths, that means it’s going on sale 1st February 2022. I know it’s disappointing that it’s not before Christmas, but I don’t pick the release dates the publishers do. I have been writing two books a year like clockwork for ten years. I’ve never had a publication date pushed back because I’ve missed a deadline. I know waiting is hard. I am old enough to remember how hard it was to wait for JK Rowling to write ‘Order of the Phoenix’. It’s all going to be alright. We’ll get there.

‘Shockingly Good Stories’ is now available!

The most commonly asked question I get is ‘Where can I buy your book?’ The answer is complicated and depends on where you live. But here is the answer in as simple a form as I can give…

1. If you live in Australia you can buy it from your local bookstore. If they don’t have it on the shelf, they can order it in for you.

2. If you live in any other country then you can order a copy from Book Depository. There is a banner in the top right corner of this page that will take you there. They have all my titles and free international shipping.

3. If you would like a signed copy, my local bookstore The Bookshop Bowral can send you one. Here’s their email address

Thank You Queensland!

Thank you so much Glennie School in Toowoomba, Marymount Primary School on the Gold Coast, Pacific Lutheran College on the Sunshine Coast and Redlands City Council Library for hosting me this last week. I had fantastic time meeting so many wonderful kids, teachers and librarians. To all the people who were frustrated that they missed me – don’t worry I hope to be back soon.
