The first draft of Dragon Moon is finished, so I am having a bit of a breather before I start on the second draft. Not that I’m sitting around doing nothing.
There are final touches to be done to what will be my next book The Jerilderie Letter which is an illustrated version of Ned Kelly’s famous letter (for any non-Australian readers, Ned Kelly was a famous bushranger [outlaw, bandit]). The book is packed with fabulous illustrations by Dean Jones.
So If Ned wrote it and Dean illustrated it, what’s it got to do with me, I hear you say. Well Ned’s letter isn’t easy to read, so I have edited it so that it is clearer, but hopefully without losing his sense of humour and unique way with words.
I thought it was time I posted another photo of our dog, Rita, who is now seven months old and pretty much fully grown. She is as cute as ever but is going through her difficult teenage stage. She likes to play ball, but doesn’t actually like letting go of it so you can throw it!
