I'm really thrilled to be heading to Canberra's Asia Bookroom. Like a bee in a honeypot can't compare to Sandy in a bookstore specialising in Asia titles with lots of history and books about Samurai Japan on the shelves. I'm taking my piggy bank and hoping to get some Korean history books to supplement my research for Samurai Kids book 5. It's hasn't been proving easy to find out the information I need to know - but I am confident I'll find lots of useful and interesting 'got-to-have' books on Thursday.
Come along - 6pm on 6 August, to hear a few tales - some tall and some true - about writing Samurai Kids, children's literature, researching 17th century Japan and my latest release Monkey Fist. More information here.
