keeping it real at the sydney writers’ festival

SWFIn very exciting news, on 24 May I will be at the Sydney Writers’ Festival talking about The Flywheel and realistic young adult fiction (no vampires allowed) with some seriously awesome YA talent. Also on the panel are New York Times bestseller Laurie Halse Anderson (whose latest book, The Impossible Knife of Memory is a cracker), Australian writer¬†Barry Jonsberg, author of the wonderful My Life as an Alphabet and It’s Not All About YOU, Calma!, and the legendary Melina Marchetta, who has written some of my favourite books of all time (If you haven’t read Looking for Alibrandi and Saving Francesca start TONIGHT). Event details are on the SWF website
