    I am currently doing a paper on Children’s Literature and my assignment (due to be submitted in less than 2hrs but not completed yet 🙁 ) is about NZ literature. I have to do 1 non-fiction review, well I chose your book Steppin’ with Benji Marshall. I am so pleased to find some awesome books aimed at getting boys interested in reading. I am a single Mother of 4 (3 young boysand a baby girl) and though the 2 older ones are above their years for reading I still worry as they get older they won’t be as interested. Anyways my 10yr old is a rugby freak and also league so I will definitely be looking at finding this book for him to read. So keep up the great work, now I must get back to my assignment!!!

    Hi David, I read the article about your book in the NZ Herald. As the mother of three sporty boys (13,11 and 9) I am grateful that someone out there is adding something new to the range of books available to them. My 9 year old has a football (soccer) obsession and I have just read him The Flea, by Michael Part (life story of Leo Messi for kids). He was captivated and I was so happy as I haven’t found anything before that has held his attention in such a way. Maybe you could do a book on Winston Reid??? Thanks again. PS My 11 year old would probably enjoy your latest book. What is the age range it is aimed at?

    Hi Erica thank you for making contact and for the encouragement. I definitely am planning to do a book on Winston Reid. His achievement is amazing but not really acknowledged much in New Zealand. My latest book is aimed at 12-16 year olds but a good 11 year old reader might enjoy it too. Thanks again Erica and all the best as you raise your sporty boys 🙂
