Talks / EVENTS
My author / illustrator sessions are always fun, engaging and inspiring. Interactive book readings, trumpet playing, scat singing and live drawing demonstrations are just a few of the fun activities we do. Kids discover story creation techniques and character design, they can try texture rubbings, make musical crab shakers or paper plate seagulls.
School & Library visits
My preferred audience is Kindy to Yr 4. In saying that, I have presented to an entire primary school in one day. Big kids love being read picture books too! For older groups I adjust my presentations to focus on the writing and illustration process. I also run workshops for adults covering picture book design, illustration and the creative writing process.
Festivals and Events
I love speaking to children or adult groups at festivals and events as there is always such a great vibe and general enthusiasm when book lovers come together. I recently presented sessions at the Asian Festival of Children’s Content in Singapore, and in 2017 will be speaking at the Perth Writers Festival. Did I mention I will travel anywhere?
As a member of the Australian Society of Authors, I charge ASA standard rates for public appearances.
