Burnt Snow, my first novel, was released in 2010 by Pan MacMillan Australia. White Rain, the sequel, is due soon. As part of a trilogy about witches, earth magic, curses, love and revenge, this blog archives my research into the world of the witches - as well as my own magical saga as a new author.

Arty Party

Wanna come to an Arty Party?

The good news is I have... finished White Rain!
No way! YES, WAY! It is with the publishers being made beautiful and then there will be release dates, and then there will be a lot of rejoicing. Well, there'll be a big launch party.
Rather than wait, I thought I'd throw a party, anyway. As you may know, I have this lovely residency at Thirning Villa in Sydney's Ashfield (see blog post below), and as part of my brief is to make fun happen, I am throwing a free, free, free Arty Party this coming Monday, May 23rd from 7-9pm.
We'll all be at Thirning Villa, Pratten Park, Arthur Street, Ashfield.
There'll be some singing from Sophie Webb and the Opera Fairy, Adam Norris is the MC, the Beehive Ensemble will perform a spooky story, there may be a little bit of installation art from Hamilton Richardson Supergenius and I will be reading a tiny sneak peek of White Rain. There'll be lights and a little food and top hats and lovely people, so do drop in. Ashfield Council are our generous sponsors.
And for the theatrically curious...
June 9 (Thu), June 10 (Fri) and June 11 (Saturday - Rebecca Black taught me that, yair), my new play How It Is or As You Like It is doing a workshop season at Pratten Park Bowling Club at 7.30pm, right here next to Thirning Villa. You may wish to send an email to theashfieldbeehive@gmail.com and reserve tickets because some wonderful people are in it and it is FREE. Directed by Travis Green and dramaturged (that's made nice) by Jenni Medway, the HOT AWESOME performers are: Lucy Miller, Karli Evans, Erin Taylor, Aileen Huynh, Joe Parro, Mark Rogers, Simon Binns, Abe Mitchell, David Molloy, Brendan Tynan-Daley and Kirby Medway.
How much fun is that? LOOK AT THE BUNNY, IT IS SO FUN.
