Why do creative rights matter?

Sharing the stories behind my books Enemy at the Gate and The Great Chocolate Cake Bake Off here with @CreativeReadsNZ. 

As their website says, creative rights are Good for our economy, Good for our culture, Good for our social wellbeing and Good for all of us.

2021 New Zealand Book Awards for Children and Young Adults

I'm very happy and excited to be shortlisted in the Picture book section of these awards with This is Where I Stand, beautifully illustrated by Kieran Rynhart and published by Scholastic. It's a privilege to be included amongst these five lovely titles - and I know there were many other amazing picture books that came out last year as well, so  big congrats to all those writers and illustrators, shortlisted or not.
