About meI am an author and journalist. My first YA novel, Game as Ned, was published in 2007 and declared a Children's Book Council of Australia Notable Book for 2008. (You can check out the book trailer on YouTube.) My next novel, Five Parts Dead, was published in August 2010.

I read to my children almost every night and then burn the midnight oil reading for myself. Currently reading lots of YA fiction as I'm writing YA novels and like to know what's already out there.

About my libraryThings I'm reading to my children, YA fiction, favourites from my bookshelves and titles regularly on loan from local libraries. Lately I'm on a bit of a graphic novel binge, making up for a childhood when comics were deemed to be devoid of educational value. How wrong they were!

Ode to a Dandelion

(Rea Williams)
Though others may curse you for a weed,
To destroy they deem their duty,
For me you are a lovely flower
And I revel in your beauty.

You're first to show your brilliant color
After winter's bitter cold.
You're truly springtime's harbinger
With your delicate mounds of gold.

Your flowers are food for a weary soul,
Your leaves a zesty tonic -
Such succulent flavor they contain
It makes us feel bionic.

I know your color soon will fade
But your seeds are avian food -
So, like the wind and thus the flower,
It's ill that blows no good.

In God's great plan for nature
Everything does have it's place
And I, for one, am always glad
To see your smiling face.
