Welcome to my website!

I'm a writer of books, mostly for young people, and some of those books have award stickers on the front. I'm really fortunate to have been invited to schools, festivals and conferences all over Australia and overseas, but the best thing of all is hearing from readers who have been moved or entertained by something I've written. Telling stories – it really is the best job in the world.

There's plenty to explore on my site, so have a wander and let me know if there's anything else you need to know!
