I’m so excited to be a part of the Hong Kong Virtual Young Readers Festival 2020! I’m appearing alongside British author and performer Mark Llewelyn Evans, who uses music and storytelling to engage kids with the story of opera, Australian writer and bush worker Matt Zurbo, who inspires kids to create their own stories by finding humour and inspiration in every day events, and fellow Hong Kong writer Anna Tso! The Festival is accessible to all children in Hong Kong, live this and next week, and after that you can view the sessions on the HKYRF website at any time!

My live session with Harry Harrison takes place next Wednesday, and today we had a fun rehearsal with the kids of Shatin Junior School for an audience! They watched our very funny, informative video session, made by my daughter Annabel Cohen, in which we tell how The Chinese Calendar Tales came about, and how to publish a picture book, with some fantastic footage of Harry drawing one of our characters from The Tale of Chester Choi, from initial sketch to final painting! Make sure you visit the HKYRF site next week to see the video and Q and A session yourself!

How I ended up in publishing!

spring_2019_publishingHere’s an interesting article from Bookazine which was published in their Spring magazine yesterday, where 7 people involved in publishing in Hong Kong (including Harry Harrison and me!) tell the story of how it all happened! Take a look and see if maybe one day you also might like to join this wonderful, frustrating, fascinating, difficult but very rewarding industry! Thank you to Clemence Robine, marketing manager at Bookazine, for including me! And don’t you just love Harry’s fun illustration?
