Completely Tamsyn

Tamsyn Murray is amazeballs. If you don’t believe me, here’s photographic evidence:

amazeballsSee, I told you. Praise indeed from one of our Book Clubbers don’t you think? But why is Tamsyn ‘amazeballs’? Well, there are sooo many reasons, but here’s our top 5:

1. She can lick her own elbow!

2. She is a self-taught balloon animal creator.

3. Plate spinning is easy peasy for Tamsyn.

4. Decorating of cakes is yet another of Tamsyn’s talents.

5. Tamsyn is a fantastic author!

You have no idea how tricky it was to limit that list to just 5.

Tamsyn came in yesterday to share the first of a new series of books with us…and to decorate cupcakes too! Why the cupcakes? Because Cassidy (from Completely Cassidy) is in search of a talent for her schools’ talent show. To understand how Cassidy would have felt, Tamsyn tried her hand at a whole host of new pastimes, from hula hooping to plate spinning. And she discovered that she’s actually pretty good at cake decorating, amongst other things. Not only did we get a visit from a great author, we also had a cake decorating 101 session, with the following results:

All of our visitors had a brillaint time with Tamsyn and can’t wait for Completely Cassidy: Star Reporter, which is due for publication on 1st July.
