18 May Exploding Endings on the Road
One of the best things about being an author is visiting different schools. You get to meet some fantastic people! I love the energy that an audience can generate, as well as the creative ideas we can make and share.
Here are a few pictures from some of the recent school visits.
Launching Exploding Endings at Tara Anglican School for Girls was a very special occasion. Tara is a wonderful school and I enjoy working there on Thursdays.
This fantastic ‘Exploding Endings’ display was created by Mrs Sophie Partington, a friend of mine and teacher-librarian at Wentworth Falls Public School.
The students at Milton Public School were heaps of fun. Some of the drama they improvised cracked me up.
Meeting readers is a blast. It’s always great to get to have a chat.
Doctor Genre is always a popular segment. The students at Ulladulla Public School were quick to request Doctor Romance!
Wearing my ‘Back to the Future’ shirt and doing my best to impersonate Doc Brown, explanation drawing and all.
Discussing the ‘Top 79’ at St Mary’s Star of the Sea, Milton.
One of my favourite authors, Tristan Bancks, writes about ninja librarians. Well . . . I think I may have met one!
The students at Cabramatta West Public School busy brainstorming during a writing workshop.
The students at Wentworth Falls were trying out “conversation flippers” to use on their teachers.
Thanks for checking out the blog and I hope you enjoyed the photos!
Exploding Endings 3 is ready for a September release, and I’ve now turned my attention to writing book 4. I’ll spend most of June working away at this and hope to share some new ideas during the next school visits.
There’s some big news and a competition coming shortly. Stay tuned!
