Kate interviews Trent Roberts


Trent Roberts is a screenwriter and author who lives in the western suburbs of Melbourne with his partner, two kidlets and French bulldog, Ziggy. He loves the ocean, weird animals, indie pop and choc-tops. While he can't do any of the stunts described in his book, he can do a half-decent forward roll and, in perfect conditions, remain upright on his surfboard for a few seconds.

On Our Radar


On Kate's radar is a new campaign, backed by the American Library Association, called Unite Against Book Bans. Attempts to ban books from libraries are rising at an unprecedented level in the USA. The American Library Association reported more than 729 attempted bans of 1,597 individual books in 2021 alone. If you'd like to support the campaign to keep great books on library shelves, visit the website at www.uniteagainstbookbans.org where you can make a donation or find great social media resources.
