Thank Yous, Wristwarmers, and a Nice Hot Cuppa

The last couple of months I’ve been either nursing a head cold or rushing about trying to get what I planned to do done as well as what I failed to do when nursing a head cold. It’s been awesome (apart from the cold) and can I say a big “THANK YOU” to everyone who […]

An Evening at Notions Unlimited

The Sunday after the launch I headed down to Chelsea to Notions Unlimited for a signing event. I love Chuck’s store. I’m a sucker for any bookstore dedicated to science fiction, fantasy and horror, and Notions Unlimited has an extra cosy atmosphere. Maybe it’s because Chuck is so friendly and welcoming. Maybe it’s the couches […]

Thief’s Magic Character Illustration

If you’ve read my longer bio, you’ll know I am an artist and former illustrator. I like to draw my characters, and sometimes I’ll even paint scenes from the books. The maps for the Age of the Five trilogy feature characters from that story, and a few years ago I made some simple line drawings […]

Thief’s Magic Is Out There!

Reports of Thief’s Magic arriving in bookstores and reader’s homes have been popping up in my Twitter notifications feed, so I think we can officially say it’s out there in the big wide world. But it is being released on different dates in different places. In Australia and Poland it was officially out yesterday. In […]

Notions Unlimited Signing

Melbourne is a big city, so I’m going to be introducing Thief’s Magic to the world not just at the book launch but at a signing event at the wonderful Notions Unlimited bookstore. So if you can’t make it to the launch, live down in the south east of Melbourne, want to schmooze with the […]

Thief’s Magic Launch!

I have a book coming out! Wheeee! Kermit flail! (Sorry. It never gets old, this book release thing.) To celebrate, Hachette Australia, Dymocks and I are holding a little party to launch it into the world. We’re also giving one lucky RSVPer a prize. I’m not saying what it is, only that it’s awesome and […]

They are also giving away a copy of Thief’s Magic to one lucky visitor. There are also many interesting post in this year’s Women Writers […]
