Books

Since 2005, I have had seven books published.  First up was my junior novel, D.O.G., published by Macmillan. Next came Dog Logic:a pooches guide to dogs behaving badly, which came out in 2010.

2014 was a big year for me, as my next three books were published. My first two picture books, Going Fishing and its companion, Going Camping were first. These were quickly followed by Midget Bones’ Diary.

My Dog Socks, a picture book was published in 2017. Illustrated by Sadami Konchi and published by Melbourne based Ford Street, My Dog Socks is a wonderful story in memory of Sox, my clever canine companion and doggy author of Dog Logic. Yes, there was a change in name spelling between the dog and the book too!Socks is a 2018 CBCA Notable book, a finalist in the 2018 Speech Pathology Book of the Year and is on the Premier’s Reading Challenge Book list for Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia.

In late 2018 my picture book Bruno the Boisterous Blue Dog from the Bush (Big Sky 2018) was released. This is an alliterative tale using extensive colloquial language celebrating the close bond between Bob the barefoot bushie and his best buddy Bruno. The story was inspired by my Dad and his various canine companions.
