All the bees and bugs are disappearing.

Should Rosie lead a mission into Bug World to rescue Raven?

Or stay home and save her family

Brisbane announcer, Emma Griffith interviewed me *LIVE* asking me why I address social issues like bullying, wellness and the environment.

Media Courier Mail QWeekend

QWeekend published my quirky story My First Car. It’s all about my love-hate relationship with my first car, a Morris Marina, as a young Sydney school teacher.

IMG_7402Here’s a snippet from My First Car

… “On weekends, I navigated to rock venues to see INXS and Midnight Oil. That’s when I could get the engine started… My most memorable journey happened in 1981, when I married the love of my life, Steve Tyrrell, and we drove to Melbourne for our honeymoon.

In 1983, my friends Diane borrowed my Marina, but was T-boned by another car at a crossing. She was unhurt, but my resilient Marina was a write-off. Later, meeting the insurance guy at the wreckers for an inspection felt like saying goodbye to my first boyfriend.” — Karen Tyrrell

At the end of the media story, QWeekend published details of my book launch at Logan North Library on 24 June. Here’s the latest News on my book signings …
