    Hi Karen,

    What you are doing regarding the 3 E’s is marvellous, and it’s marvelous what you are doing with your writing!! I am an ex-fisherman (gen X), from CAIRNS and Crooktown. I used to work as a reef fisherman mid 80s to mid 90s back when there wasn’t much ecological awareness. Thankfully, the boat sank. I’d love to learn more about writing for kids and I have a children’s book in mind called ‘Mad Fisher’ (top secret: your eyes only). Also, I have in mind creating an App with the same name which shows the virtues of environmental friendliness, and the beautiful underwaterworld wonder of the GBR. If, you have any ideas how I might pursue this goal, and any of your books you might recommend, and/or other information that may assist, please let me know. Kind regards, Andrew Carter

  • Hi Andrew, Lovely to hear from you.
    I recommend you read Great Barrier Reef Rescue. Available at songbirdsuperhero.com comes with FREE Great Barrier Reef show bag and a numbered certificate.
    My advice is as follows …
    1. Read every children’s book on the subject.
    2. Join a writers group and get your story critiqued.
    3. Join SCBWI, join Write Links and learn about the industry.
    Best wishes,
    Karen 🙂
