It's been a year of new books: Raven's Mountain in Australia,
and the start of the Rainbow Street Shelter series in North America, with
There were Writers Festivals in Perth and Brisbane, being a Premier's Reading Ambassador, school and bookshop talks around Melbourne and Victoria, and the honour of launching Song Of The Dove for Errol Broome & Sonia Kreutschmar, and Squish Rabbit for Katherine Battersby.
And most importantly, there was good health, happy family reunions, good friends, and gratitude for a good life. What more could anyone ask!
Wishing everyone the best for the New Year, in life, reading and writing, and a 2012 to be grateful for, all over again.
