Testimonial from Jacquie Kilkenny, Children’s and Youth Services Librarian, Boroondara Libraries”

“Emily kept a group of 25  children enthralled, amused and engaged from beginning to end. It was a fast-paced, fun and productive session full of Emily’s humour and insights.”


Testimonial from Stephen Karabatsos, Teacher Librarian at St. Michael’s Grammar School:

“We were fortunate to have Emily present to our entire Year 7 cohort for Australian Book Week. We wanted an author that could deliver an informative and entertaining program on young adult literature and also explain the challenges and rewards of being an author. Emily’s presentation was visually stimulating and she continually interacted with the students. She set the scene early by explaining that she welcomed questions and this made the students feel part of the presentation.  Our English staff were also quite impressed with Emily and also requested if they could use some of her writing strategies.  It was refreshing to see an author engage with such a large audience and needlesss to say our students left with quite an impression. Overall it was a positive, professional and engaging presentation and we highly recommend Emily for any literary promotion or event you may be considering.”
