During her February fellowship in Adelaide, Samantha completed the structural edit for her third book, Mister Cassowary, with the University of Queensland Press. This junior novel was launched on October 16.
Richard used his Canberra-based fellowship in April to work on his Young Adult novel Peril, which deals with the issue of post-traumatic stress disorder. He now has a publishing contract for this book, which is due to be released by Omnibus Books/Scholastic Books in January 2017.
Congratulations Samantha and Richard!
