I write and occasionally illiustrate for children and adults. I'm British but live in Australia, where I'm Coordinator of SCBWI Queensland. For decades, I've dreamed of spending time in Nevada and Arizona. Thank you for having me here.
I'm also on the committee of the Children's Book Council of Australia and involved with Book Links Queensland Inc., which is trying to develop a Children's Literature Centre similar to the Seven Stories Centre in Newcastle, in the UK.
I hope I can be helpful.

One thing I've learned this year is that Networking works! I asked an editor on www.jacketflap.com
for 'friendship' and along with acceptance was asked if I'd be interested in a project - now completed. The book will hopefully come out worldwide in 2009.'
Here are a couple of old ones. The calligraphy book was published by Allen and Unwin, and in the UK and NZ by Unwin Hyman/HarperCollins as 'A Manual of Calligraphy'.
