I am an Aussie mum and grandmother too.  I now live in Oregon USA and write books for children.  These days there is so much to tempt kids away from the sheer pleasure of diving into a great book.

If you would like to find titles that tempt that reluctant reader of yours away from computer games and the TV and texting, check out these links.

I have just finished a FREE ONLINE short story “tease.” It will whet  kid's appetite for my new MG adventure for boys.  “Taconi and Claude – Double Trouble.”


Titled, Taconi and Claude's Big 2011 Adventure, this FREEBIE  also includes fun characters from two of my other books.  NEW EPISDODE each week. - http://taconiclaude.blogspot.com/

Reading is a Magic Carpet Ride to far places, fun and adventure.
