It’s a small world…and it goes round in circles!

On Wednesday at QSI Zhuhai I met a lovely young man, Henry (above right), who asked me to sign a 2nd edition The Tale of Run Run Rat, which had been given to him back in 2009, when he was living in Portland, Oregon, USA, by his friends Lillian and Courtney Lee  (with me above left) who at that time were living in Hong Kong! Now, Lillian and Courtney live in Seattle, Washington, USA, and Henry, who lives in Zhuhai, has bought them a copy of The Tale of Rickshaw Rooster as a return gift! It all goes to prove that it’s a very small world…and that life sometimes goes round in circles!

A fabulous 2 day visit to QSI Zhuhai!

Thank you to the lovely Heather Domenico (above left) for hosting me on Wednesday and Thursday at QSI Zhuhai! It was a very busy time, with story readings from the Chinese Calendar Tales and Dirty Stories for everyone from 2 years old to 13 years old, and writing workshops for everyone from 7 years old to graduation! Plus a talk to the parents and staff about How to Create Writers in the Digital Age – and book-signings in between! Not to mention some great chats with British poet and publisher Neil Stevens, a teacher at the school (above right).  Then a fun evening  with Principal Cliff Geis-Poage and his lovely wife and teacher Becca who treated me to a delicious dinner before I caught the ferry home to Hong Kong! Everyone was so warm and welcoming – the terrific staff, Theresa in administration, not to mention the mums and dads and the gorgeous kids and teens. It was my first visit to Zhuhai in mainland China, and my first visit to QSI – I hope to see you all again soon!
