Meet Stevie Louise. She is an entrepreneur (that’s like a business person), an entertainer (obviously), and an extrovert on the inside (wait, is this a thing?). Stevie and the Brooke Street crew are hard-up for cash. Going viral doesn’t last forever, you know, and killer costumes are expensive. To keep their showbiz dream alive, the kids are competing in a local talent quest. But the competition is stiff (I mean, have you ever heard four goats sing acapella?), and Alex has a unicorn horn glued to his forehead for at least the next three weeks. It’s tough working under these conditions, but Stevie is up for any challenge to save Lunchbox Productions…

Join comedian, author and social media star Tanya Hennessy for a Q&A about her children’s middle grade fiction series Stevie Louise. Hear Tanya discuss all things junior fiction, writing and inspiration for her main character Stevie Louise Mason.
