A Fan From Australia

Posted on: July 30, 2012

I was delighted to see this adorable photo of Lucy from Adelaide, Australia, holding my two books.

Lucy is the sweet daughter of  Dean Mayes author of  The Hambledown Dream.    Dean’s latest book,  Gifts of the Peramangk  is soon to be released.


The family is currently reading the books and enjoying Amanda’s adventures.  The best gift parents can give a child is the love of reading and it is never too early to start.  Lucy is indeed a lucky girl to have parents that buy her books and read them to her.  She is also lucky to have Dad who is an author.


It was a feel good moment when I realized children all over the world are reading my books.  Yet another dream come true for this girl!

Lucy looks like a big fan of your books, Darlene!

That sounds great, Darlene!

It must be so exciting to realise that people are reading and enjoying your work.

Ooh how lovely to gain a new fan and from the other side of the world too. We no longer have any littlies (my youngest grandson is 13) so nobody for me to read Amanda to.
Enjoy having Andy to stay. Look forward to hearing of his travels.

This little one looks so happy holding onto your books, Darlene. Each time I hear of children and reading a light goes on.

I told both my children that a special parcel was coming from all the way across the other side of the world and the two of them were just about having kittens by the time it arrived.

That must make you so happy to be a children’s author. Wonderful picture!

Love the photo and what great PR!

That photos a keeper! What a lovely treasure to find in your inbox.

So awesome!!!

Aww she’s so sweet and I’m sure she’s being inspired to travel by your books, which is great!

Thank you everyone for your most welcome comments.

That is so wonderful! I am so glad you shared.

Your little reader looks thoroughly entertained.

That is a wonderful compliment to your books – how very nice!


Too darn cute, Darlene. 🙂
