Good question! These were taken at a recent ‘Meet the Author’ afternoon tea at Manly Library, organised by the new northern suburbs branch of the Children’s Book Council of Australia in conjunction with the library as part of the Manly Arts Festival. It’s taken a major tussle with technology to transfer these photos to my blog but when it came to writing captions for them, I’m afraid technology defeated me! So who are the people in the photos? At top, that’s me (in the Ghost Boy t-shirt) with two of the lovely students who came to our afternoon tea. Underneath, I’m posing with authors (from left) Wendy Blaxland, Chris Cheng and Belinda Morrell.
And I’m thinking now that I’ve changed my ‘look’, I should get some new photos for my website – but I HATE posing for photographs. I always feel like a Cheshire cat grinning away – but I look totally sullen if I don’t smile. Anyway, I like smiling! My tip for the day (for a lifetime actually): if you’re happy and open to the world you’re far more likely to attract good things your way than if you’re always expecting the worst – cos then, the worst is what usually happens!
