 Great fun last night watching Andy and Terry! My daughter got to be part of the silly hat parade, and joined in the marshmallow mosh pit, when A&T batted out marshmallows to a crowd of ecstatic children!  Congratulations to fellow WA author and friend Dervla McTiernan whose debut crime thriller The Ruin is released in Australia today and has already shot straight to the top of the charts. It is beautifully written and introduces a new detective you are sure to love. Don’t miss it!  One of my favourite things about Perth - pelicans hanging out on streetlights #justanotherdayinwa
 I’m just a little bit excited about The Hidden Hours being on the Davitt Awards ‘Adult crime novel’ shortlist this year! Congratulations to everyone on the list! And I have a couple of other exciting things to share over the next week or two, and one concerns a brand new book. #hiddenhours #davitt #youdontknowme2019  Found these beauties growing in the forest today. #naturedoesntneedafilter  When you turn up at your Mum's and find your childhood bed unceremoniously dumped at the roadside ready for verge collection! #solongbed #80sbedfreetogoodhome #mumgotafancynewdaybed
 Happy Easter! If you live my way and fancy an Easter treat then Grill’d at Ocean Keys (Mindarie/Clarkson), who make the best burgers in town, are currently running a promotion where you can win one of my books! #booksandburgers  Happy Valentines Day and happy #libraryloversday - the perfect day to thank libraries for all the love they have brought into my world over the years ❤️ #librarylover  Reading hour often happens late in my household, once the kids have fallen asleep, and so tonight I have stayed up past my bedtime to finish this wonderful novel, which will wrest your heart one moment and have you laugh out loud the next. What a very special storyteller you are @tesswoods_author - your characters might be fictional but your warmth and determination is in the bedrock of your story and it's so hard to think that Nick and Anna and Ahmo Fariz and Tante Rosa are not out there somewhere (although of course in so many ways they are). I hope that everyone else enjoyed their reading hour as much as I did. #crazymessylove #brbreading #australianreadinghour
 Congratulations to @natashalesterauthor on the publication of The Paris Seamstress - if you are looking for a great Easter Read then this is it my friends. You will laugh and cry and be transported. #parisseamstress  Today and for the rest of the year I will be celebrating because The Hidden Hours has made it on to @betterreadingau top 100 books of 2017! What an honour. #hiddenhours #pinchme  What will you be reading today for the Australian Reading Hour? I'll report back on my reading later on! #brbreading #australianreadinghour
 It’s my birthday today  and I couldn’t have wished for a better present than to hear that The Hidden Hours has gone into another reprint and is now deemed a bestseller! A huge, heartfelt thank you to all of you for reading my books and making this possible   Aretha tribute night at @theellingtonjazzclub - these ladies and the whole band were amazing! Always love a night out at the Ellington. I tried to introduce my daughters to some Aretha classics this morning but they weren't that impressed with my pyjama dancing. Will try Abba on them tomorrow   I have BIG NEWS today - so pleased to announce that I have signed a contract to publish two more books with @simonschusterau ! I can't wait to share the stories - I'm obsessed with the characters in my next novel at the moment, they are up to some really juicy things! #amwriting #books #writing #authorsofinstagram #booknews #psychologicalsuspense #lovethisgenre
 I’m always grateful for people who remember to take photos at events as I invariably forget! I had a great time talking with Susan Midalia about The Hidden Hours tonight as part of @perthfest writers week - thanks to everyone who came along. #hiddenhours #perthfestww  My 8yo was snake wrangling when her buddy decided to check me out. Who's watching who?! #schoolholsfun  Fun with @natashalesterauthor at the launch of #beautifulmessylove by the brilliant @tesswoods_author - wearing purple to please my purple-crazy 3yo.
