I'm getting very excited about appearing at Auckland Writers Festival, which takes place from May 15-20.

I've got five events!

Three of them are part of the Schools Programme on May 15 & 16, where I'm appearing twice in the Aotea Centre and also taking a workshop for budding writers.

Another is a free event on the Family Day (Sunday, May 20 from 11.00am-11.30am in the Concert Chamber at Auckland Town Hall) called the Dragon Brothers Extravaganza. The age suggestion for that is 5+ as I'll be focusing mainly on the novels.

The Writers Festival has also printed out a huge version of the map from the picture books, which will be stuck to the concrete out the front of the Aotea Centre. You'll be able to download the AR Reads app and watch it come to giant, 3D life!

See you there!
