Cover Reveal!

My next book ‘Hamlet is Not OK’ comes out in July. Thank you @jesscruicky for designing such a beautiful cover.

‘Hamlet is Not OK’ is the story of a 16-year-old girl who gets busted for not doing her homework (yes, this bit may be a little autobiographical). When her tutor makes her read Hamlet out loud – they are sucked into the play. She meets Hamlet, realises he is totally messed-up and tries to help him solve his problems. And she has some really strange solutions.

I’m super proud of this book. It was my covid project. During lockdown, I had so much fun immersing myself in Shakespeare’s world. I’ve tried to write a novel that makes all that beautiful language accessible to a younger audience while exploring the heavy duty issues in the play, that are still so relevant to teenagers today.

I’m going to do a launch show for ‘Hamlet is Not OK’ at the Rebel Theatre in Sydney. Tickets will go on next week. Please do come along if you can.
