I got to showcase my books and especially the newest one called The Sandpit, I will upload the link when it comes online but if you get a chance check it out tomorrow, would love to know what you think!
See interview here
Its been a really exciting week this week, I was an exhibitor at the General Collective markets on Sunday at ASB Showgrounds, what an amazing day, 200 people were lining up from 7.30am in the morning, and if you were there and stopped in to say hi Thank you! It was so great to meet so many people and sell some books The feedback was really good, most commented on how lovely and bright the illustrations are and also on how the pages are nice and durable or I like to call them Dribble resistant haha. I also found it really interesting that all the books sold about the same, I though maybe one would be preferred over another but actually they were all as popular which is just so exciting!
Hi, I hope you are having a great week leading up to Easter! My son who has recently discovered Chocolate, or Chclate as he calls it has no idea whats coming, he is going to be totally in heaven when Nana comes over with all sorts of goodies! for meI don’t like chocolate at all, I know I’m so weird! I have tried every kind but still I would rather have something savoury, I just don’t have much of a sweet tooth!
But its another exciting week in the world of Max this week, we have our first Magazine giveaway in this weeks Edition of New Zealands Womans weekly, check out Page 81! All you have to do to be in the draw is send in your adorable pics of your kids, which is so easy as I'm sure you are like me and the camera is never away! Check out my Media page for the article
Also we got another great review! which is so encouraging and always makes me look forward to writing more and more so thank you as always for your support!
And finally the Max books are slowly making their way into stores, with now in 4 independent book shops in Auckland, which is SO exciting I can’t help but to go in and take pictures haha! I will put up details of those stores in a new tab on my website soon.

De Vine Tours’ two-week walking trip through New Zealand wine country sees a group of strangers come together for the trip of a lifetime.

A story with memorable characters, emerging relationships and even a touch of mystery.
