I was lucky enough to get to hear Jeff Kinney, author of the Diary of a Wimpy Kid books, talking about his story at the Opera House in Sydney recently. What an inspiring man! Inspiring to young people wanting to be creative and express themselves and inspiring to older writers and illustrators! Jeff’s huge success did not come automatically but came after years of hard work and trying. To this day, Jeff still works a day job and does his world famous author thing in his spare time! A really fun night! Jeff’s 7th Wimpy Kid book ‘The Third Wheel’ comes out in November.
