Marc McBride was at the Adelaide 'Meet the Writers Festival' again in June. He illustrated my book 'Across the Creek' which won the Holyer an Gof award for Cornish children's books in Cornwall in 2005. I'm sure Marc's fabulous and accurate depiction of Cornish folklore characters helped. I feel very honoured as I've realised he also illustrated the Deltora Quest series. I enjoyed them too.
