LitLive Maleny 2023
My first ever in-person reading, in cosplay! It was a great night, with loads of lovely readers and talented authors who made me want to buy all the books!
Afterwards, much to my surprise, there was an article in the local newspaper.
My first time at Fraserpop was amazing! And the new cosplay was a hit. I don't think Maleficent has ever smiled so much.
Amazing people, stunning cosplays, and fantastic authors. Far too many descriptors in one sentence, but it was such a brilliant weekend, it's hard to encapsulate it in a few words.
Brisbane Supanova 2022
As always, Supanova is such a blast! I met some lovely people, saw some amazing cosplays, and may have run across a book wyrm...
It was also my first time cosplaying as Shari. I'm still not sure how I was talked into doing that - loads of fun. Who knows who the next cosplay will be!
Storytellers Festival 2022
I was honoured to be part of Sunshine Coast Libraries first Storytellers' Festival.
Taking place at Beerwah Community Hall, the Festival boasted interviews with local authors, workshops and kids activities.
Children's Book Week Event 2022
Very honoured to attend a special Children's Book Week event at Queensland Government House.
Her Excellency and Professor Nimmo were wonderful hosts. It was a lovely celebration for literature professionals from all walks of life.
No photography inside, unfortunately, but here's a shot from just before the event began.
Readers and Writers Festival 2021
The Fellowship of Australian Writers Queensland (FAWQ) in partnership with USC and Moreton Bay Regional Council Libraries, held the FAWQ Readers and Writers Festival in Moreton Bay.
This event was amazing. I was honoured to be part of my first ever panel. It was surreal to sit alongside Gary Crew, who is just synonymous with writing on the Sunshine Coast. A great day to spend learning about writing from some of the greats.

SupaNova Brisbane was amazing.
Not only was Rakemyst released, there were loads of cosplayers, fantastic artists and creators, and a few famous people thrown into the mix.
I’m looking forward to the next SupaNova!
Evil Inside Us Launch 2018
The launch of the Evil Inside us Anthology, hosted by Moreton Bay Libraries.
This launch holds a special place in my heart as the first in-person event I attended as an author. It was a chance to meet some fantastic writers, and there was a special guest appearance from one of my super-fans and beta readers.
This holds fond memories as the 'official' start of my author career.
