Hello!

I'm Tania McCartney and I'm an Australian author, illustrator and editor of children's books. I've always wanted to live inside a book, and now I practically do.

I've been writing professionally for over 30 years, starting in magazines and entering the children's book industry in 2008. I have experience in publishing, self-publishing, editing, proofreading, marketing, promotion, speaking, teaching, layout, design, typesetting and devouring picture books-like, with my teeth. My illustration journey was rekindled (after a 25-year hiatus) in 2013, and I'm now both writing and illustrating children's books.

Pinch me. I must be dreaming.

The Happy Book is a podcast that's been on my mind for many years, and I knew it would happen when the time was right. Now is the time. Sharing and connecting with others in the kids' book industry is hugely important to me, and this podcast is another way I can do that.

The Happy Book is a place for children's book creators of all kinds. You may be a writer, an illustrator, a designer, an editor, a publisher or just a book aficionado-we're all in this together, and for people like us, there's nothing more delicious than talking shop. Am I right or am I right?

This podcast is specifically for those interested in the creative processes and production of kids' books, and would particularly suit emerging creators-or those who just need a refresher or inspiration. These weekly podcasts will cover a variety of topics, experiences, tips, tricks, insider info and advice on creation and publication-from baby board books through to middle grade. I may cover young adult at times, but the big focus will be on books for younger readers.

I'll often feature thoughts and input from other children's book creators and publishers-both established and emerging-and will conduct interviews, too. Each podcast will list its content, so you can pick and choose which suits you.

Fire up your device, cream in those earbuds and enjoy this foray into the magical world of kids' book creation. If you have any questions or comments, you can say hello at books@taniamccartney.com.

Welcome to this happy place-the Happy Book.

    HELLO!

    Welcome to Chapter 19 of The Happy Book. In this chapter, I'll be talking to author/illustrator Kylie Howarth about the author/illustrator journey. I'll be chatting to Kylie about her wonderful books and how she creates them-you'll actually hear a behind-the-scenes rundown of how she does it!

    We'll also talk about thinking outside the square when it comes to book ideas, about illustration techniques, combining writing with pictures, the importance of visual narrative, character consistency, finding your voice and so much more.

    GUEST - KYLIE HOWARTH
    Kylie Howarth is an award-winning, internationally published children's author/illustrator from Western Australia. She is also part fish! Kylie has swum with whale sharks, manta rays and humpback whales in Ningaloo and piranha and pink dolphins in the Amazon. She has braved scuba diving with lionfish in Egypt, marine iguanas and hammerhead sharks in the Galapagos Islands, and has encountered great white sharks in South Africa! Kylie not only draws inspiration from her underwater travels but also her own two fish-kids who are ocean explorers, too. Kylie's picture book Chip won the 2018 WAYRBA Hoffman Award, was CBCA-shortlisted, YABBA Awards-shortlisted, and also won a KOALA Honour Award. She has just released its sequel Chip the Lifeguard, as well as Fish Kid and the Lizard Ninja, the first book in her new chapter book series.

    GUEST - PENELOPE PRATLEY
    Emerging Illustrator, writer and educator, Penelope Pratley spends her days creating wonder . . . one illustration at a time. Using watercolour, ink, pencil and mixed media, her particular focus is creating picture books. She adores stories for children and owns far too many pencil cases. Penelope made her illustration debut in February 2018 with The Art Garden, published by EK Books and written by Penny Harrison. Penelope is currently illustrating more books to be published in 2019 and 2020. Living with a surfer, an inventor, a ballerina, three chickens, a rabbit, and an ancient guinea pig, her heart is never short of inspiration.
