On April 14 and 15 Susie and Helen will be hosting a workshop at MOCO Gallery for budding authors and artists.
The Monday workshop will give people an opportunity to explore writing projects including family histories, stories for children, family recipe books or even a start on that novel.
On the Tuesday Helen will host a pastel workshop with all materials supplied so all are welcome.
Jumping Jack Jones follows the journey Jack takes from illness back to health.
Jack loves his trampoline so he jumps from page to page landing in amazing locations and feeling much better as he progresses through the book.
Richly Illustrated by Leach the book is filled with vibrant colour and movement.
This story is intrinsically Australian and introduces readers to diverse environments throughout the country.
Susie has also stepped into adult literature with a collection of short stories, one of which won a PerfEx literary award in 2013.
Leach again added her special touch to 'How to Wash Your Undies' with a cheeky cover and delightful pen and ink sketches.
Susie now has five children's titles and one book for adults. She is working on another children's book and collection of short stories for publication in 2015.
