From age nine, Josie shelved homemade books in the school library. She received her first rejection letter from Golden Books at age thirteen.
Josie is able to cater to class requirements with an author talk, workshop or masterclass.
Subjects can also be applied to the curriculum. For example, she can focus on penguins, Australian history, multi-culturism, and differing writing genres and topics such as planning, ideas, research, humour, picture books, chapter books, fiction, non-fiction and YA.
