Somerset Memories

Category: Writers Festival

If you follow me on social media you will know that the Somerset Celebration of Literature was an epic party! Thousands of students from all over Queensland travelled to join in the festivities. I had the time of my life meeting amazing YA and Children’s Authors and tons of great students, teachers and festival supporters. Highlights include:

Staying in a fancy hotel with an incredible view.


Wearing an “I’m an important person” lanyard and pretending to be important:


Meeting my twitter favs! Like Emily Gale and Fleur Ferris …
