I love a lucky dip. Never knowing what you are going to get is one of the best surprises in life, which is why I got involved with this anthology. My Lucky Draw category was Adventure.
When I started writing Perfect Prue, I quickly realised that the adventure I wanted to share was one about sailing. I learnt to sail on bigger sailing boats than the dinghy Casey and Prue used in my story but the exhilaration of skimming across the waves with the wind whipping against your cheeks is the same. Like Prue and Casey, I had to learn how to recover from a capsize, which thankfully I managed to do without losing any crewmates!
A slightly different version of Perfect Prue also appears in 2019 Issue 6 of the Kookie Magazine. It’s thrilling to know young tweens have access to great stories and a bedazzling variety of other interesting topics to keep them reading through magazines like this. You must check it out!
