Super news about two new books!

publishing-celebrationTo The Lighthouse 

Advance copies of To The Lighthouse are here! Woo hoo! I am so excited.

It has been many years since I have opened an envelope to discover a new book with my name on it. I have tried and failed and despaired and been re-inspired to try again. I’ve been supported by so many people from so many walks of life, and I’m so grateful, and so satisfied with the result.

Copies of To The Lighthouse are flying out to lucky advance readers, ready for launch in June 2017. YAY!

I just love how this story has turned out…It has been years in the writing and re-writing, and I was never really sure I could pull off the mood and relationship and excitement I was aiming for.

If you’re lucky enough to have an advance copy, I really hope you enjoy it! And I hope it makes you want to grab your bikes and go have an adventure  🙂

The Cosmic Adventures of Alice and Bob

Copies are flying out in FREE class sets to classrooms around Australia.

Order your free copies thanks to the CAASTRO: The ARC Centre of Excellence for All-Sky Astrophysics.

This book has been so amazing to work on. It’s designed to inspire innovation, creativity and dedication.

It’s also designed to inspire a passion for science and discovery.

Which is why we’ve hidden so many things in the pictures and text…There’ll soon be free teaching notes to go with the books, but as a taster….

Did you know? 
Alice and Bob are the names physicists use instead of A and B when explaining quantum cryptography, which is one of many applications of quantum physics.

3, 2, 1…blast-off

Alice and Bob will be launched at this year’s Astrofest, a free and phenomenal astronomy event held on Saturday 18 March. The comics are not for sale, but designed as a super-fun and super-inspiring educational tool. Copies will be available on the night for a gold coin donation.

Hope to see you there!
