ABC Radio interview Karen Tyrrell Author

ABC RadioABC Radio will interview me on my children’s eco fantasy , The Battle of Bug World (Song Bird 2). I’m thrilled ABC Radio will interview me … but I’m nervous at the same time.

The Battle of Bug World (Song Bird 2) is a page-turning superhero adventure with a bullied female protagonist and a science wiz sidekick zooming around in a modified wheelchair. Two friends unite discovering their superpowers through singing, science and believing in themselves. Can Song Bird STOP the bully, save her sister, the bees and the environment? … Whilst crushing stereotypes and kicking ass.

Karen Tyrrell Bug World

 Why ABC Radio?

ABC Radio announcer Spencer Howson interviewed me for my very first book, Me and Her: A Memoir of Madness back in 2012. He was keen to find out how a bullied teacher became mentally ill and how she recovered. (That’s me author Karen Tyrrell, winner of three awards.)

Now eight books on, The Battle of Bug World addresses bullying too. But this time, it’s my alter ego Rosella Ava Bird AKA Song Bird Superhero who battles bullies to save the environment and the bees. Above all, Rosie must save her sister Raven and her family from an evil genius and a world ravaged by climate change.

 What’s my message?

My message is all about self-empowerment and connecting with your inner superhero.

Can a bullied girl and her disabled sidekick make a difference in this world?

I can’t wait to share all with journalist and announcer Emma Griffith.

Who is Emma Griffith on ABC Radio?

From breaking news and political reporting to the latest in entertainment, Emma Griffiths loves the variety of presenting a fast-paced Drive program. Like many of her listeners, Emma is dealing with the juggle of raising of two young children, full time work and creating some balance in life.

Why I Write Author Platform

whyWhy I write? Authors must express WHY they write to connect with their readers. Writers must reveal what they stand for, and WHY they create the work they do–and for whom they are creating it.

This is the Number #1 step for creating an authentic author platform.

I, Karen Tyrrell create books, driven as a survivor of parent teacher bullying and PTSD. I write to empower adults and kids to live strong. I don’t want you to experience the trauma I did.

Each of my nine books share positive message on how to be resilient and persevere against the odds.

Why I write

Why I write Memoirs and Self-help books

When I was a school teacher, I was bullied and stalked by parents at my school to breaking point and beyond. I wrote my trail-blazing memoir Me and Her: A Memoir of Madness to share my story to the world. In 2012, I published it, receiving interviews on TV, radio and newspaper across the world. In 2013,

I published the sequel, Me and Him: A Guide to Recovery, part memoir, part self-help book endorsed by Black Dog Institute. Both books won mental health achievement awards.

Why I Write books for children

I returned to teaching to prove I had recovered and I was well again. I wrote empowering books to help kids live strong. My positive uplifting stories feature children overcoming their struggles and challenges. Using humor and coping skills

 ★★★★★ STOP the Bully (Ages 6-12)

Eleven-year-old Brian is hiding something. His life is falling apart. Dad abandoned the family. Brian hates his new school. And now an aggressive bully attacks him every day. Can Brian STOP the Bully without revealing his secret?

★★★★★ Bailey Beats the BLAH (Ages 4-8)

Bailey HATES his new school. His tummy aches. He has no friends. His dog Fuzzy slobbers all over him. BLAH! How can Bailey change his BLAH to HA-HA-HA?

★★★★★ Harry Helps Grandpa Remember (Ages 4-8)

Harry will do anything to help his grandpa remember.

Bully Bailey Covers

 Why I Write Superheroes

I write superhero books for kids to show how they can connect with their inner superhero.

★★★★★ Song Bird Superhero (Ages 6-12)

Bullied girl, Rosella Ava Bird and a disabled kid dream of flying. Can they stop the bully and empower themselves through song, science and self-belief?

Can they crush stereotypes, stop the bully and save the school?

★★★★★ The Battle of Bug World (Book 2)

Three friends try to save Rosie’s sister, the bees and the planet for a catastrophe. At the same time, they must defeat the bully and crush stereotypes. I’m launching The Battle of Bug world on 24 June. HERE

Which inspirational magazine interviewed me?

Inspirational magazine, Touchstone published by Cerebral Palsy League, CPL interviewed me about my inspiration behind Song Bird Superhero. Their motto is Choice, Passion, Life. My story Bringing Superheroes to Life headlines on the cover of Touchstone magazine, Autumn 2017.

 inspirational magazine

Why did Karen Tyrrell create a character with Cerebral Palsy?

I’m an award-winning Brisbane children’s author. I present story-telling, pantomimes and creative writing in schools. I’m an ex-school teacher and have taught many children with disabilities. One little boy I taught was the inspiration for my side-kick character, Amy. He loved designing things and was the Maths and Science genius of my class, he just happened to be in a wheelchair.

I’m a survivor of bullying which eventually resulted with a mental illness (I’ve been well for 10 years). I talk to children about disabilities, diversity and breaking stereotypes. I teach children how to become strong and resilient.

 inspirational magazine

Why is Reading so important?

 Reading develops the mind of children, improving their language skills, igniting their imaginations and helping them to learn about the world around them.

Here’s an excerpt from Song Bird Superhero!

Amy scooted around me. ‘Why don’t you practise flying in your costume?’

‘Great idea.’ I started singing ♫ ‘I Believe I Can Fly’ ♫ and suddenly I was floating up into the air. The rotors vibrated under my hands and feet, but I didn’t know how to steer them. I flapped my arms fast. I smashed against one wall and bounced off another, and another, like a human ping-pong ball.

BOING. BOING. KER-PING.

Sing smooth, sing smooth, I told myself.

With a bit more practice, I was able to glide around the living room and into the family room with outstretched arms. I COULD DO IT! My heart sang. I’d never felt so free, so totally me.

Amy clapped and cheered. She opened the sliding door that led to the backyard. ‘Now go outside,’ she said. ‘Go on, I double-dare you.’

But what about Frank, the bully next door? I sucked in a deep breath and headed outside. I zoomed around the backyard, my body streamlined like a torpedo, hands by my side, feet together. I felt sensational as I flew around, creating my own wind.

The bushes behind the fence rustled. Frank yelled, screamed and stamped his feet.  ‘I’m going to get you.’

He knew!”

What other books have you written?

STOP the Bully, Bailey Beats the BLAH, Harry Helps Grandpa Remember

Jo-Kin vs Lord Terra … Jo-Kin Battles the It.

I write books for kids on empowerment, self-confidence and being kind to others.

Song Bird 2 comes out SOON!
