Here are some of my latest titles. The plays were published by Pearson and the collections are from Scholastic.

Harry Kruize, Born to Lose

Published by Ford Street Publishing.

Harry’s mum runs a boarding house for transient old men who are down on their luck. To counter his frustration and anger, Harry longs for the companionship of a dog. The Annual Gala at school features a dog hurdle race and more than anything in the world Harry would love to enter a dog into that race and win it. Such a win would give him a sense of worth and belonging.

A new lodger, Jack Ellis, befriends Harry and shares a wealth of outback adventure stories featuring dogs with him.
