  1. Hello Kate. I’m a relief teacher in Port Lincoln South Australia. Today I was given the task of reading Changes. Wow. What a great story. I read it aloud to a class of year 9 students and there were moments where they were really transfixed. One girl was in tears. I gave the reading my best. Screamed when Mum did, yelled when Dad did. I loved your story and would like to share it with my literacy class at the local prison. Think there is a lot there that they can relate to. So, thanks and please keep writing. Now I have found you, I’m going to keep searching for your works. Regards, Kellie

    1. Dear Kelly,
      How very kind of you to take the time to let me know about your experience with my story ‘Changes’. It was written quite some time ago. I’m glad it’s still being used and that young readers find it relevant. The story is based on a young person who lived not far from me. I could see the struggles she was going through trying to find purpose and strength inside a family where the adults were alas defeated. You’ll be happy to know she made it and today is involved in work similar to your own. I haven’t published a great deal for YAs. Just that collection, “Changes and other stories’ and the novels ‘Peter’ & “No Bullies, No Way”. But I’m not finished yet.
      My best wishes to you and your students, Kate
