    Hi Halle,

    No, I don’t know who won the book prize; but I was very proud and humbled to finish in the Top 75! To be appreciated by the amazing fans who inspire me to write and to be living my dream as a full time writer; I am one lucky lady!

    Best wishes,

        Hi Tamara,

        I came in the top 75! Feeling very humbled and grateful for the support of the fans. I still struggle that I am living my dream as a full time writer and that the fans who inspire me to write, enjoy reading the stories as much as I enjoy writing them.

        Thank you!

        Best wishes,

Are you writing Clementine Rose,book 14?
I REALLY want to know about it. Even though I’m a bigger (maybe the biggest,) Alice Miranda fan.

    You are totally not the biggest Alice-Miranda fan, I am

    February 8, 2018 at 8:15 pm



        Maybe you’re like the same level of being the biggest fan. Like… Ten kids who are the… TOP, TOP fans? I know I’d be in the top ten because I have SO many reasons to love Alice-Miranda and Jacqueline Harvey and Clementine Rose and Kensy and Max.(I could go on!).

        February 13, 2018 at 1:12 pm



          Yeah,mabie your right…….
          All the commenters are the biggest Jacqueline Harvey fan’s.

          Now I realise that doesn’t make sense.

          Hi Bella,

          Thank you so much for your enthusiasm and dedication to the stories :).

          Best wishes,

    Hi Kyla,

    I have lots of ideas swirling around in my head for Clementine Rose 14; there has been so much happening in her world, hasn’t there? I have been working hard on finishing Alice-Miranda in Scotland and, in the last week, finalising the structural edits and plotting the exciting launch celebrations for Kensy and Max.

    You will have to be patient, won’t you:).

    Best wishes,

Hi Jacqueline I was hoping that you could consider coming to Tasmania. I know it’s only small but it’s really beautiful and you’re books are a really big hit.
Tasmania would really like to see an inspiring author visit us and while you’re there you could go to Lake Pedder, Wineglass bay and of course, my home town and capital of Tasmania, Hobart. Hobart is really cool because we have nice riverside views at Salamanca and yummy ice-cream places.

    Hi Eve,

    At this stage I have no firm plans to travel to Tasmania, although I would certainly love to. Tasmania is one of my favourite places! A few years ago, I was privileged to be part of the Beaconsfield Writers Festival and to tour around Hobart and Launceston. There is a possibility that I may be able to get there later in the year- keep an eye on the Events tab of my website, where I will post details as soon as can.

    Best wishes,
