My thanks to Albany Creek Probus Club for your hospitality last week. I really enjoyed speaking to you and am grateful for your warm welcome. This was the fourth speaking 'gig' I've done for a Probus Club so far, and each time has been a real pleasure for me.
I am truly honoured and thrilled that 'Tommy Bell' was included on the Children's Book Council of Australia's list of 'notable' books for 2017.
Fred and I would like to invite you to our book signing at The Book Tree Toowoomba
456 Ruthven St,

I'm excited to announce the imminent publication of my 'Tommy Bell, Bushranger Boy' series. Here's what Big Sky has to say about the series:
An exciting new Australian adventure series full of danger, daring and wild colonial boys!
Tommy Bell, Bushranger Boy is a wonderful new series featuring Tommy’s time travelling escapades that take him face-to-face with some of Australia’s most notorious bushrangers.
The hero of the series, Tommy Bell, lives in regional NSW in contemporary times but is able to travel back in time to the gold rush days by wearing an old bushranger’s hat that he discovered on his grandfather’s farm.
Tommy and his friends find themselves up close and personal with one of Australia’s well known outlaws. With each adventure there is plenty of danger and excitement: armed hold-ups, sieges, frauds, shoot-outs, police chases, jail-time and much more.
Each book cleverly incorporates a parallel story from Tommy’s twenty-first century life that tests his friendships and develops his character.
Thanks to Enoggera Probus Club and Ashgrove Probus Club for inviting me to speak to your lovely audiences this year!
