1. Remembering SCBWI author Louise Schofield


graham Hilton, author Louise Scholfield's husbane at The Hughenden, Susanne Gervayauthor Louise Schofield visiting Susanne Gervay at The Hughenden Hotel Woollahra          It  was special to see Louise Schofield’s husband Graham who flew in from Perth to catch up and stay at The Hughenden Hotel in Sydney.

We shared the joy of Louise living in the beautiful bush overlooking the dam and gardens, just outside Perth.

She loved their muscovy duck BALDRICK.

She loved writing and the Australian bush.

Author of 10 books including ‘Secrets of the Tingle Forest’ which won the WA Young Readers Book Award.

it has been a year since she lost the battle with cancer, but she’s always part of the Society of Book Writers & Illustrators Community SCBWI.

The 1st Louise Schofield for Outstanding Services to SCBWI WA was awarded to author Meg McKinlay.

 Walker Publisher Sarah Foster for wild singing and dancing.

Author  Norman Jorgensen for being the wildest and funniest author there
