Teaching and writing materials for migrant learners in Australia

Other reading books

I love reading original graded readers, I love writing them – and I really love talking to enthusiasts and other writers, like Karen Slikas Barber, author of the Carly and Kumar books. My biggest delight, though, is when teachers tell me, “The students loved your book,” or, “They insisted on reading more.”

I started by writing readers for other publishers before I moved on to my own Book Next Door series:

The Umbrella
The Well
Macmillan UK: The Umbrella and The Well (Starter level).


Life is Full of Surprises
Paradise Beach
Wandering Girl
NCELTR at Macquarie University (now distributed by Macmillan Australia):
Life is full of surprises, Paradise beach, Murder and Mystery in Australia, Wandering girl (adaptation), Australians in the news (with Maureen Hague).
