Not long ago, I was on my way home from work, wearing my Aussiecon 4 t-shirt, the one designed by Shaun Tan. A lady stopped me as we got off, saying she liked the t-shirt and had been at Aussiecon herself - had, in fact, attended a panel I had done, when I was coughing so badly one of my co-panellists had to hand me a bottle of water. We started chatting and she told me she'd sold her first trilogy, overseas yet. The lady was Amie Kaufman, who has joined us on this site. so welcome, Amie! I'll look forward to reading the first of her books when it's out.
At some stage Iwill add her web site to my links, but meanwhile, why not look her up?
