My debut picture book, ‘Float or Sink?’, was released on February 1, 2021.
The book has been masterfully illustrated by Andrew Plant and is published by Ford Street.
The seed of the idea for this story came when my children and I were floating sticks in a creek near our house after a heavy rain storm. Sometimes the sticks would become snagged or disappear under the water, but other times they would bob along out of sight. I wondered what happened to them next. What might the various creatures of the creek think of this stick floating along? As we were playing and imagining we were also accosted by a duck, who wasn’t happy with us. She became Queen Quack, the villain of the tale and her giving the side eye to the other characters is my favourite illustration in the book.
