Come along and dress up as your favourite Jacqueline Harvey character. Have your photograph taken and your books signed at this celebration of Alice-Miranda in Scotland. THIS IS A FREE event. I’ll also be signing copies of Kensy and Max and Clementine Rose too.

Friday 6 July The Little Bookroom Nicholson Street Carlton North 3.00-4.00pm

Bestselling author, JACQUELINE HARVEY, famed for the ALICE MIRANDA series as well as CLEMENTINE ROSE and most recently KENSIE AND MAX, will be launching Alice’s latest adventure with us here at The Little Bookroom!

To reserve your ticket CLICK HERE.





COOL! The people in Melbourne are SOOOOO lucky that they get to see

When are you comeing to New Zealand?


July 2, 2018 at 2:02 pm



    And Kyla, coming has no E.
    But can you come to New Zealand?

    July 3, 2018 at 1:44 pm



      I agree, Jaqueline should go to NZ. I don’t live there, but it’s unfair that kids in NZ don’t get to see/meet her because they don’t live in Australia. Are you coming to WA?

    Jacqueline Harvey


    I am actually going to NZ this Friday but I won’t be doing any events. However, I am sure that I will do some events there soon. We’re going on holidays and to check on the progress of our new house. Hope to meet you soon Kyla 🙂

when is the release date?

July 2, 2018 at 7:54 pm



How do you get the names for the people that you put in your books?
How do you get ideas for your books?

July 3, 2018 at 1:32 pm



    Yeah, how do you?

    July 8, 2018 at 9:46 am

    Jacqueline Harvey


    I look on baby name websites and I look up online phone books and lists of names in various countries. I also collect interesting names at book signings. Ideas come from everywhere. Often travelling inspires stories and sometimes it’s things I read in the paper. Sometimes I just make it up!

    July 9, 2018 at 3:21 pm



And if you do come to New Zealand can you go to Manchester Street School in Feilding?
What will Kensy and Max Disappearing Act be about?

July 3, 2018 at 1:35 pm



Can you write about Alice Miranda going to New Zealand?
Or like Clementine Rose going to New Zealand?
Or Kensy and Max going to New Zealand?
Or a new series of someone who lives in New Zealand?

    Saw her today at Chadstone

      Jacqueline Harvey


      Thanks Zara – you’re awesome!! I will definitely give that idea some thought.

      Best wishes,

      July 9, 2018 at 3:47 pm



    But yeah, you should!

    July 8, 2018 at 9:48 am

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Well you never know now that I am going to be a part time resident of NZ. I’m sure that I can come up with something and I did mention that Kensy and Max have already spent time in NZ in the first book (it was really brief). Maybe they will go back there again.

    July 9, 2018 at 3:31 pm



Okay I’m obsessed with New Zealand.

July 3, 2018 at 1:45 pm



I absolutely love your books, I’ve been reading them since I was little. I was just wondering how many more Alice Miranda books you were planning on writing (I hope lots and lots), and also if you were planning on writing Alice-Miranda stories when they were all older

July 4, 2018 at 12:10 am

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Philomena,

    I’m signed up to write at least 20 Alice-Miranda book and I do love the idea of making an older series with her as well. You never know! Thanks for your kind words 🙂

    Best wishes,

    July 9, 2018 at 3:48 pm



Dear Mrs Harvey,

Do you have any events held in Brisbane? I would love to see you!

Hi Jacqueline
Is Jacinta’s dad going to be in AM18 because I think if you introduced him into the story it would have a really good scoop.
i’ve always wanted jacinta’s dad to be in it because it might get a deeper look into Jacinta.
Just a suggestion, of course it doesn’t matter what you put I the stories we always love it.
Thank you

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Lexie,

    Jacinta’s dad was in the early books but only as a man from afar – he was a pretty horrible guy and that’s why her mother was fairly awful to begin wtih too. Maybe he could come back and be a ‘changed man’ – that’s a really interesting thought. Thanks for putting that in my head!!

    Best wishes,

    July 9, 2018 at 3:46 pm



When are you making Alice-Miranda come to New Zealand?

July 7, 2018 at 8:50 am



I have yet to recover from Alice-Miranda in Scotland to be very honest. All of your books are well-written, of course, but this one was impeccably clever and all the sub-plots tied together so nicely and JACINTA AND LUCAS *unintelligble screeching* MY LITTLE HEART COULDN’T TAKE IT!

It was also really nice to see all of the characters from the other books, too! I was wondering when Neville would show up again, it has only been, uhhhh, 13 books 😉

Oh no has the book been out long enough for this to not be considered spoiler-y? Is Neville and Jacinta/Lucas spoilers???? I hope not that would suck. But wow. My little heart. Is blessed.

(P.S Everyone don’t talk to me unless you want to hear about Lucas and Jacinta because that’s all I’m going to be talking about until the next book sorry not sorry hahaaaa

    Delilah your comment made me laugh and smile – it’s wonderful and I’m so pleased that you enjoyed the book so much. I loved writing it and I don’t know how I’m going to top it – but believe me I’ll do my best. Yes I love the Neville and AM interactions and Jacinta and Lucas are adorable. There will be more adorableness to come.

    Thank you!!


    July 9, 2018 at 3:44 pm



      Will Jacinta and Lucas getting married??????????????????
      What will the next AM(Alice Miranda) book be about????????????
      When will another Clementine Rose book come out???????????????

      July 12, 2018 at 10:40 am

        Jacqueline Harvey


        Well I’m not sure about Lucas and Jacinta – that’s a long way off yet. The next AM book is going to be a school drama with lots of drama and the next Clemmie is out in December (as long as I get it finished soon).

        July 12, 2018 at 10:58 am



Hello Jacqueline! I really love all your stories and I wanted to thank you for the amount of time and dedication you put into them! I hope you don’t mind me asking but I’ve seen a lot of comments about Jacinta’s Dad, but I have to wonder if we’ll perhaps see more of the elusive Kitty?
I love Lawrence and Charlotte has done a wonderful job as Lucas’ step-mother but I’m just so dreadfully curious about Kitty Nixon and if she still loves her son and wants to see him. Will she perhaps show up at some point?
Thank you in advance!

July 10, 2018 at 3:58 am

    Jacqueline Harvey


    That’s a very good question and something I’ve been thinking about too. You never know – I think she should be back on the scene again too. So let’s wait and see.

    July 12, 2018 at 11:01 am



      oh oh! i was actually just going to ask something similar! im very sorry, it was a long way back and my memory sucks but…kitty left lucas with her sister because she couldn’t deal with him right? and due to this lucas felt abandoned by her? that did feel very open ended, after all, that had been lucas’ only parent for 11 years, surely it must have been difficult. so I was very curious about that and I just thought I’d pop in and drop my two cents in hehe. (sometimes I forget that lucas is very short-tempered, I mean he punched a boy in the nose for bullying a new kid! but I have to wonder if that was also a byproduct of a less than stable mother/son relationship? hmmm, something to ponder over I suppose). I’m super sorry for my grammar, im on a phone and have very lazy thumbs hehe, I hope you don’t mind humouring my silly little thoughts if you have time.

      July 14, 2018 at 2:08 am

        Jacqueline Harvey


        All good thoughts Adi and I’ve been wondering some of the same things. I have a couple of kids who have interesting parent – child dynamics that could be further explored. You never know 🙂

        July 14, 2018 at 7:27 am



What state does Alice-Miranda live in? Could you please start a romance between Millie and Sep?

July 12, 2018 at 12:31 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey


    I’ve never said exactly where Alice-Miranda lives as I’m happy for readers to make up their own minds. That’s a cute idea for Millie and Sep 🙂

    July 12, 2018 at 8:29 pm



I have read all of your Alice-Miranda, I was so exited when I heard that there was another Alice-Miranda book 17 I was so happy I have already finished it I read it in one day, and now I have read it a few times.
I was wondering could anyone help me when was the day that Alice-Miranda published, I’m doing a book review on all the Alice-Miranda book combined.

July 26, 2018 at 7:51 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey
