Last Wednesday I had a fantastic time visiting all the kids of Glenealy ESF School in Hong Kong by Zoom! We had two fabulous sessions, from P1 to P6, where I shared my very first story in the Chinese Calendar Tales series, The Tale of Run Run Rat, in a fun story reading, complete with those extremely naughty Chinese crickets Yin and Yang!

And right in the middle of my session with P1 to P3 the village bells here in my village in France rang out the 7am carillon, and I was able to open the shutters so the kids could hear it! It was a truly magical moment! A big thank you to the lovely Gisele Stones, primary librarian, for inviting me!

Hello from France!

Hello my lovely fans and friends! I’ve been a little quiet for a while…because my French husband and I have just moved to our lovely house in a little village in the Dordogne in south west France, and we’ve been soooo busy! Here is a picture of it, taken just after we arrived, when the weather was still hot! Now, it’s getting chilly and all the trees are changing colour – it’s very beautiful!

Our little village has a wonderful old church with a bell tower. The bells chime the hour, every hour, and also do a very noisy but pretty carillon at 7am, noon and 7pm! Here are some pictures of our village:

But fear not! I shall still be visiting all my old haunts in Hong Kong, China, the rest of Asia and Australia with my books, whether in person or by Zoom! And I can’t wait to see you all again soon!

Even more exciting, I’ve got a new book in the pipeline! It’s my very first chapter book for kids aged 8 to 12 and it will be published by Blacksmith Books early next year. You’re going to love it!
