LAUNCH OF 'THE TIME OF THE JADE SPIDER'

Date: 25 MARCH 2017 Time: 4.00pm Place: Manly Library, Market Place Manly 2095 This book has been developed from the prize-winning manuscript in the 2016 Write A Book In A Day, open section, competition. The project not only raises money for the Kids' Cancer Project but also creates an invaluable opportunity for some creative collaborative writing. The Northern Beaches Writers' Group of which I am a member has been a leader in this kind of project for four years. 2016 was the first time I participated as a writer and the first time I have dipped my writing skills into the pond of Y/A fiction. It has been a terrific experience and I have enjoyed both the thrill and tension of creating a book manuscript in twelve hours and the longer process of turning this into an exciting story for pre-teens and young teenagers to read.
