Night in Boise, Idaho. The tunnel leads to Bridges. Bridges lead to Clay…and to walking and saying the words…The words are still there.

Not rain or thunder&lightning could stop @Tropfest 2014 in the end - damn honoured to be there. Films. Stories. Sydney. Nowhere else I’d want to be.

No complaints from the Sydney winter. Even dogs pause in the fog to watch the sun. Then home to sleep (them) and work (me).

Typical that it’s only once I’ve left Vegas that I get a photo I like…of a postcard. Thanks ALA and @yalsa for the Margaret Edwards excitement & @randomhousekids for being YOURSELVES, as always.

an interview, a backyard, and of course, a trampoline.


Here’s an interview I did for School Library Journal plus a few photos from the backyard. Forget the books – look at the blood, sweat and tears in the paint job on that cubby house…So nice talking to Angela Carstensen, and a great hour or two with James Horan. Check out his latest (and brilliant) photo exhibition, ‘Irish Horse’, here:

As for what to take out of this interview?


I’m so glad one of my dogs ate all the protective crap around the trampoline…
