Facebook Author Page

You may have noticed I’m not using my blog as much as I used to. I still love blogging (and will continue to do so occasionally), but putting worthwhile posts together takes time when I often only have snippets in amongst busy days. But I do love online worlds – connecting with those who love books and other writers and parents and little readers and fellow rabbit enthusiasts. In many ways I’ve found my Facebook Author Page has taken over. As a platform I find it more immediate and a lot more interactive. I can post up photos and links daily and people can send me things too, and then conversations flow and fun things happen. So if you haven’t found me over there yet…

CLICK HERE (yes, here)

Feel free to hop on over, as I’d love to meet you. And just in case you’re wondering, these are the kinds of things I’ve posted in the last month or so…

A sneak peek of the latest project I’m working on:


The novels I read week to week:


The delightful literary luggage tag a friend gifted me as I headed off on an adventure:


The only rabbit that has stayed still long enough to be photographed since I arrived in Canada:


A couple of gorgeous illustrated books I picked up in Cuba. They’re in Spanish of course, but luckily I have a Spanish speaker in my household:


The only rabbit I spotted while in Cuba, down a side alley in Matanzas:


The gorgeous sunset we were treated to at a literary event in Brisbane called ‘Romancing the Stars’:


And finally a special February Valentine’s Day wish from both Squish and I:


Hope to see you over there
