Jacqui’s News

‘Read it again, please, Mum'

Where’s Lucky?, illustrated by the talented Sandra Severgnini and published by the wonderful team at Little Pink Dog Books, hopped into bookshops in April. Lucky the swamp wallaby was delighted with his copy. It is his story after all!

Where’s Lucky was inspired by the amazing work of Theresa and Tony who run Our Haven Wildlife Shelter from their backyard in Victoria, and is based on Lucky, one of their rascally rescues.

Fabulous first 2020 SCBWI QLD Brisbane branch meeting yesterday!! The lovely Clair Hume, UQP’s new commissioning editor for children’s and YA books, was our wonderful guest speaker, expertly interviewed by SCWBI QLD’s amazing leader Ali Stegert. Then I had the pleasure of interviewing a team of talented authors, @angelasunde @karentyrrellauthor @tarynbashford and Dave Lowe on our Book Launch Brilliance panel! Following on from their brilliant insights and tips we broke into groups for an exciting book launch brainstorming session. Such a great day! Thank you Ali for planning this meeting so well and to everyone who helped out and came along to participate. Hope to see you at our next meeting! 😀💕 Photo credit to @mariaparentibaldey 😘#scbwiqld #scbwi #childrensbooks #writerscommunity #kidlit #uqp #writersofinstagram #libraries @ Chermside Library ...

New Picture Book- Where's Lucky? - Coming April 2019!

Here I am meeting my muse, Lucky, the swamp wallaby. This photo was taken at Our Haven Wildlife Shelter, Golden Beach, Victoria, on a recent research trip to the shelter. My new picture book, Where’s Lucky?, is based on this adorable little orphaned joey and will be illustrated by the talented Sandra Severgnini and published by Little Pink Dog Books.

Parmesan off to a Galloping Start!
