School visits & Public appearances

I am available for Meet the Author sessions with schools, libraries other interested groups for events like Children’s Book Week, Literature days and Writers’ Festivals. I normally charge the rates as recommended by the Australian Society of Authors and have included below the list of fees from their website. Because I’m based in Perth, Western Australia, travel expenses to country areas and other states would need to be covered.
