Thai-riffic! receives Awgie Nomination
Each year the Awgie Awards are presented by the Australian Writers’ Guild to the best scripts for film, television, theatre and radio. This year (2018) I’m very excited that my adaptation of Oliver Phommavanh’s book Thai-riffic! is nominated in the Theatre for Young Audiences category.
It was such a wonderful experience working with Oliver and The Theatre Division to bring this story to the stage and it is always lovely to have your efforts recognised by people in the industry.

I love awards. As a kid I made my own Logie and Academy Award out of plaster of Paris. I painted them gold but I wasn’t fooling anyone; they were wonky, the bases fell off and, let’s be honest, I’m a much better writer (thankfully) than I am a sculptor. It would be nice to win a fair dinkum award I can display somewhere but the competition in this category is very daunting, so I might just have to buy me some more plaster of Paris just in cased I need to improvise.
