Thank you.

Hi everyone, sorry I’ve not posted anything in a while. I’ve been working on a few things:

  • tying up loose ends on my new book The Last Viking Returns;
  • working on a picture book for older readers that’s coming out in 2015;
  • visiting lots of schools and libraries to present talks and workshops;
  • and doing an Artist Residence at Mount Hawthorn Primary School with fellow author/illustrator Briony Stewart.

This year has been busy! But on to the purpose of this post.

Today is a landmark for a few reasons.

Firstly, it marks the end of my first year as a full-time author/illustrator.

It’s been an amazing year and I want to thank all the schools, libraries, freelance clients, teachers, students, parents and colleagues who have supported my work and helped make all this possible. I’m very lucky to be doing what I do.

Secondly, it’s only 2 months until the launch of my new book, The Last Viking Returns!

To celebrate both of these occasions, here’s the book trailer for The Last Viking Returns. Turn the music up loud.
