DB_OffTheTrack_WEB 400x200.pngDo you know a young writer who’d love to try their hand at an exciting short story?

I’ll be judging a competition for young writers who’d like to win a signed copy of my latest novel for kids, Off The Track.

What you need to do:

Write a short story about your adventure on the Bibbulmun Track and send it in to for a chance to win.

Closes: 23rd November 2018
Word Limit: 500 words
Theme: Your Bibbulmun Track adventure
Prize: We’ll be giving away a signed copy of Off The Track to two major prize winners. Runners up will receive a special activity sheet, book mark and more. Plus, entries will be published on The Bibbulmun Track Foundation website.

With thanks to The Bibb Track Foundation:
I’m thrilled to be working with The Bibbulmun Track Foundation on this….

Off The Track was inspired by my family’s own adventures and blisters and marshmallows and hills and dales and uplifting fresh-air experiences on the track.

I was lucky enough to be introduced to hiking by my parents when I was just a kid, and my kids are lucky enough that we also take them hiking. The Bibb is one of our favourite places to go…

Real adventure, right on our doorstep. How lucky are we?!?!?

I loved reading all the entries and I felt like I was walking the track with all the birds and fresh air and adventure. Thanks to everyone who entered! It was extremely close between all entries so congratulations to you all!
See you on the track!
