Junior science geniuses Augustine, Celeste and Oscar can't believe their luck when they're accepted into an elite and mysterious science academy summer camp run by the elusive Inventor Quark. From the moment they step inside the gates of Quark's Academy at the end of Molecule Drive, they know they're in for a week they'll never forget. But things at the academy are not quite what they seem, and the three quickly realise that they'll need to put their squabbles aside and their heads together if they're ever to get out of there alive...

A page-turning adventure for readers aged eight to twelve, QUARK'S ACADEMY is bound to cause a hair-raising reaction!

It's Fleur the flamingo's birthday, and her friend Bo the hippo is sending her a present. Can you use Bo's clues to guess what it is?

Could it be ice-cream mountains to slide down or ten-tiered cakes for all the town? Or maybe it's the best present of all - a big hug from your best friend.

This gorgeously illustrated birthday treat celebrates friendship, giving - and birthdays!

Something for Fleur and Quark's Academy have  been published by İş Kültür in Turkey and are also being distributed in the US and Canada via Barnes and Noble and other outlets.

In 2018 and 2019, Quark's Academy was part of the Sharjah International Book Fair, where I was lucky enough to visit schools in Sharjah and Abu Dhabi and take part in a panel discussion about science in fiction.


Talking about writing is one of my favourite things to do! Whether someone has never written a story or has planned a series, exploring the elements of writing is one of the best ways to keep improving as a writer. I have spoken at schools and bookshops across Sydney as well as in schools in the United Arab Emirates. I also enjoy speaking to adults. I've spoken at conferences for librarians and festivals, including the Shire Writer's Festival.

Every Monday afternoon, I run a creating writing group for students in grades 4-6 via Westwords. My style of teaching is interactive and engaging. I believe writing can be a great way for young people to have fun, express their creativity, feel valued and make new friends.


Check out some of the interviews I've done on various podcasts including the Australian Writer's Centre, One More Page and Middle Grade Mavens.
