About the Author - Daddy and the World's Longest Poo
Brydie Wright is a first-time Author from Sydney. Four years ago, motherhood turned her life on its head and sparked her imagination. Brydie now finds creativity through writing about the quirks of family life. Through her tongue-in-cheek tales, she writes as much for the parents of little readers as for the little readers themselves.
Finalist in the Independent Author Network Book Awards 2017, Brydie's debut picture book will delight pre-school and early primary readers with its honesty and sense of humour. Mums, Dads and grandparents will get a cheeky laugh out of it too.

There's a story to suit every child's taste and Brydie is excited to share a snippet from Magic Beans, her short story contribution to the collection...
Daddy, can we plant the (magic) beans? I’d love my own beanstalk, reaching high in the sky, with a giant living at the top. He’d be very scary but I am brave, just like Jack. If I climb up and catch the goose that lays the golden eggs, we’ll be rich!

Friends of Old Government House, Parramatta
Ever fancy volunteering at a heritage property, or attending a historically rich event, at such a place? Brydie was delighted to attend a special performance of Blaxland & Daughter's Pioneers in Petticoats at Old Government House recently and was in awe of the work of the volunteers and the excellent events they host for history and culture lovers. Read all about it here.
Ghosts - The Sins of the Father (til 22 Oct)
Brydie had the pleasure of attending the opening night of Belvoir St Theatre's new adaptation of Ghosts, by Henrik Ibsen. It's a serious drama with social messages that have just as much relevance today, as when they were written in the 19th Century. Pamela Rabe gives a remarkable turn as the haunted Mrs Alving.
Don't miss the production, playing for a month at Belvoir, Surry Hills, from 21 September 2017. Catch Brydie's review here.
