An invitation to the launch of Ella and the Ocean

July 7th, 2019

Ella lived in the red-dirt country
where the earth was as dry as old bones
and it hadn’t rained
for years
and years
and years.

It’s four weeks and a day until the release of ‘Ella and the Ocean’, my first picture book, and on Sunday August 4 at 10.30 am we’re having a launch to celebrate. If you’re in Hobart, come along to the Hobart Bookshop in Salamanca Place, where the governor, Kate Warner, will be doing the honours.

Small children are welcome, of course, and we’ll be having a paper boat hunt for their entertainment. Ella is gloriously illustrated by Jonathan Bentley. You can find more of his books here and here.
