It gives me great pleasure to announce that One Less Fish is now a title with my own publishing company Silkim Books. Originally published by University of QLD Press in 1995 and then reprinted in 2004 ,2005 ,2007 and 2010 , the rights reverted back to me and Allan Sheather last year and we decided to re-release the book . Finished copies will be available in late September 2020.

One Less Fish is a timeless book and is more relevant now than ever before. It has been released in a number of countries including USA, South Korea and Spain . It has also won a long list of national and international awards –


  • Honour Book – Children’s Book Council of Australia 1998
