After the successful completion in 2008 of a course in writing children’s stories through Adelaide TAFE: Centre for The Arts I couldn’t wait to launch into children’s stories, a major shift from my previous forays into writing for adults.
Since then a number of my children’s stories have been published and I’ve had small successes in Children’s Story Awards too.
In 2014 I self-published TIME GAMERS: The Chameleon Quest, a Fantasy Adventure novel for 9-12-year-olds, which is the first in a TIME GAMERS series.
Theatre is another arts pursuit I enjoy. In addition to acting on stage I also review professional and amateur theatre for an international theatre magazine and website.
Reviewing children’s books is certainly a very different experience to reviewing theatre, but one that is equally rewarding.
An avid reader never loses the excitement and anticipation of opening the first page of a new book.
