It’s heart-warming to get letters of appreciation form people who read your books, but none more so than from the kids themselves.

Thank you year 2/3 class of 2020, you made my day, week, month even year!

I hope to send you some more books in the very near futur

1st School reading of my yet to be published book

Had my new book ‘A Killer Whale can’t eat KALE!’ (not published yet!!) read to two grade one classes today…wowser the feedback was amazing!.. they giggled and laughed, they loved the rhyme, and tried to anticipate the next thing, they loved the characters and the expressions… it was so enjoyable to hear that the book fit in with their curriculum of healthy eating, they even had discussions on what other names Killer Whales were called and were surprised to have a fact sheet at the end of the book.

Great validation and with the teachers endorsing it I will now look to get a publisher on board.
