It is always so exciting to be able to finally hold a copy of my new book in my hands. I got the first advance copy of The Thunderbolt Pony last week and now today I am off to Sydney on tour! So excited! I can’t wait. The Thunderbolt Pony is an epic journey with earthquakes and OCD, a very brave girl called Evie and her feisty gang – a cat called Moxy, a dog named Jock and her beloved grey Arabian pony Gus. I can’t wait for you to read it – it’s going to be in the shops on September 25!!

This is Moby the Ohaupo School cat who greeted me in the staff room when I arrived with a baby rabbit in her mouth that she had just caught! Naughty puss! It was clearly a cry for help because she wanted some milk – which she promptly got in exchange for handing over the rabbit who was shaken but unharmed!

Thanks for the fun visit Ohaupo!

In Hamilton East today where the ice cream store next to Books For Kids had created a special ‘Diamond Horse’ flavour to celebrate the new book! Ihapera Esson (pictured here with her cone and the third year straight she has had her book signed by me!) gave its coconut goodness the thumbs-up!

The “Speed Date an Author” event today in Nelson was awesome. All the students today were amazing and the girls from Nelson Prep – pictured here with me – blew me away with their writing abilities! Every one of them knocked it out of the park with amazing creative work. To be in a room with so many potential genius authors was an honour ladies…

On tour in New Zealand with the new book this week – Napier and Havelock North were the first stops and it was amazing! Loved meeting the girls at Woodford House and hearing their exciting news – they’ll be bringing their horses to school next year! Shades of Pony Club Rivals! I want to go back to school!!
