New Adventures


A Note for Children was presented to Woodend Primary School today as a way of saying thank you for their support over many years. It was the first place were I truly discovered my love for teaching and because of that experience I enrolled at teachers' college...and the rest is history.

The children love my book. Each time I read it to a new grade I watched their reaction and their level of engagement. They did not know that I was the author, not until the very end of the story, when I showed them my picture on the back cover. The engagement was real, not just to please me, and they often clapped at the end of the story...sweet!

I long for the day when a big publishing firm recognises what this book can do for children and takes it on board and distributes it all over the country. Until then, thank you for your support...
