Road trip? Did anyone say Road trip?

Yes, I along with Cora Groenwald and Evadeen Brickwood will be in the Eastern Cape from the 18-21st June visiting all manner of schools in East London, King Williamstown, Grahamstown and Port Elizabeth with our Schools Reading Road Show. SRRS.


Look out for us and give us a wave if you see us in your town or on the road.

We will be going into schools to deliver sponsored books (if you would like to sponsor 50 books for a school please contact me +27 722 477 101) we will also be reading to the children and doing short workshops with them to encourage them to read. 74% of grade 4’s in South Africa cannot read in their mother tongue! (PIRL Report Dec 2017) we have had a huge success with this in schools and find it raises the enthusiasm of the children when they actually get to meet the author of a book.

Children’s authors in the Eastern Cape if you would like to join us please contact me.

Look out, here comes Toucane the Toucan


Toucane the Toucan, Polly the Parrot’s cousin will be with you soon. For slightly younger readers, this picture book will contain all the magic of the Polly’s Piralympics Series but will follow the adventures of Toucane the Toucan.

Set in St Lucia, South Africa, Toucane and his best friend Peet the Parrot share many adventures together, join them soon when Toucane Learns to Surf

Contains colouring pages, plus puzzles to solve.
