No matter how much crazy stuff was going on in my life, this was something I had to celebrate. This was the culmination of a childhood dream.

You can’t wipe the smile off my face right now.

Massachusetts-based publisher Star Bright Books has bought the US rights to Darcy Moon and the Deep-fried Frogs.

This is SUCH exciting news, especially so soon after the release of the book in Australia. It’s not easy to break into the American market, and this is a dream come true for me.

Star Bright Books specialises in books for young readers and for those working in literacy programs in North America.

They believe ‘only the best is good enough for children and produce books that are not only entertaining, but meaningful and sensitive to the needs FROG1of all children.’

How ‘hoppy’ am I that they chose Darcy Moon?

Fan-froggy-tastically HOPPY!
