Later this week me and Scott will start blogging together at insideadog. That’s right you’ll get a twofer—we will both be the writer in residence for the month of July. Though in Australia July starts on Friday the Sixth which in America is Thursday the Fifth. Got that? Not to worry, I’ll post here to let you know when we’ve started posting there.
Insideadog is the premier youth literature site in Australia—possibly the world! Past writers in residence have been such illuminati as Randa Abdel-Fattah, D. M. Cornish, Nick Earls, Simmone Howell, Margo Lanagan, Melina Marchetta, Garth Nix and Marcus Zusak. Not bad, eh? Pretty stellar company to keep. Do come over and say hi.
In other news it’s the fourth of July here in the US of A, which is their independence day. The celebration of telling the Poms to bugger off! (If only we Australians had done the same!)
Happy fourth of July, everyone! Be safe with the fireworks. Don’t drink too much. And eat only enough to make you happy.
