Hey, y'all know I'm some kind of secret superhero storyteller, right?

I’ll be at this year’s Asian Festival of Children’s Content (30 May – 6 June 2015), taking you step-by-step through the process of developing your own supercreative imagination and using digital publishing tools to create more fun, love and excitement in the world. Come as you are + we’ll have a great time. :)

My talk is titled “Using Digital Content to Improve Your Fiction and Engage More Readers”. It's part of a session called SWIPE RIGHT FOR DIGITAL, which is hosted by Tusitala Books, the digital publishing company that developed and still manage our Super Cool Books iPad ebookstore app. At the same session you'll also hear from Eric Huang, Development Director at Made in Me, a digital creative studio specialising in children's entertainment.

If you’re planning to turn up, do send me an email and let me know if you’d like me to cover anything in particular.
