Two new books, two more book launches

I hope you can join me for one of my book launches this month. And because one of the launches is going to be virtual, you can attend no matter where in the world you are.

Oct 25: Livestreamed double book-launch-a-palooza!

EDIT: Here’s a recording of the launch.

Because I can’t get over east this year to promote my new books, I’m having a virtual launch!

Please join me to celebrate the release of my two latest books, Chickensaurus and There’s Something Weird About Lena.

This is a free, livestreamed event for the whole family, featuring drawing activities, giveaways, laffs, PLUS two super awesome special guests: best-selling authors Nat Amoore and Tim Harris!

Oct 31: ‘Halloween in Freo’ triple book launch (for families)

Halloween in Freo: an evening of free, family-friendly fun

****** FYI – TIME CHANGES ******
Due to unprecedented demand and group size restrictions at the venue, we are running the launch in two time slots.
If you are already registered for the Spooky Story Trail, then stick to the original plan and come to the triple book launch at 4:15pm for a 4:30 start. You can pick up your library/treat bag then head off on the trail at 5:30pm.
** NB, The Spooky Story Trail is now BOOKED OUT. **
If you are NOT already registered for the Spooky Story Trail, then please come to the launch at 5:40pm INSTEAD. We will run the launch a second time.
Thank you for your understanding – we hope you can still make it!


I’m doing a Halloween launch for my two latest books, Chickensaurus and There’s Something Weird About Lena! And to make it extra special, we’re also launching a THIRD book: Zombie School Teachers by Sigi Cohen and Matty Mitchell.

You’ll get to hear about these three new books, meet myself, Sigi and Matty, and get books signed! There’ll also be prizes for the best Halloween costumes. PLUS you’ll be able to register for the Spooky Story Trail – a walking tour around some secret Fremantle locations – where you’ll hear from some great local storytellers and collect Halloween treats along the way.

This family-friendly event is sure to be spooktacular. And it’s FREE!
