 My 3 year old had to design a house and add her family this morning (with a little help!). You might recall I only have two children so who is the girl in the doorway? Why, that's my little one's imaginary friend, who has been with us for about 6 months now - and gets pride of place!! The stories she tells us about what they get up to makes me wonder if this kid has a storytelling future! #childhood  Audiobook - check. Obligatory popcorn - check. Delicious snack of own book cover made by the multi-talented @well_read_cookie and sent across the country by @Simon schusterau - check! It's time for Big Sky festival - see you soon Geraldton!! #bookstagram #bigskyfestival #geraldton #bookcookie #writersofinstagram #writersfestivals  Last few days of being one of the iBooks books of the month for April alongside some incredible books including my great pal @natashalesterauthor - it's been a lot of fun watching my book nudge between some amazing names (my author heroes!) for a little while in the fiction charts - and my first book Come Back to Me has even had a look in too! #thehiddenhours #hiddenhours #comebacktome #iBooks #happyauthor #fiction  It's the final countdown (der ne ner ner, der ne ne ne ner)! My website is ticking down to publication - although you may already find it in a few shops! #hiddenhours #publicationday #happyauthor #bookstagram #writersofinstagram #80schild  Is it just me or was there a face in the sky last night? #cloudstagram #sunset #westernaustralia
