Star Launch Thank You and Prize Winners

Hello again Fellow Children’s Writers and Friends,

A short blog today simply to say thank you to all the family and friends who came along to our launch of Star almost a month ago. Margaret Dewar, Peter and Kathy Creamer and I had such a wonderful time celebrating with you all.

Your costumes particularly during Lockdown were creative, clever and fun! Your enthusiasm and shooting star speed at the quiz was incredible and the artworks submitted for the competition were clever, detailed and lovely. Thank you, thank you all.

COVID delays getting various items to me, have meant delays getting Star Bag and Book Pack prizes made, but they are all done now and winging their way to prize winners as of today! So look out for the postie Tracy, Ines, Diah, Jude, Ian, Dannielle, Georgie, Cheryl and Carolyn 🎉🎁😊

Once again, what a great Zoomy party we had, thank you all.

Farewell fellow travellers,

Savour the quest,
