Livinia Nixon is more than just an iconic Australian television presenter and actress. Each weeknight on Nine News Melbourne, Livinia brings Melbourne viewers their weather reports. She has also been keeping herself busy at home.
As a mum, Livinia was used to making up stories for her kids. Together they would set off on great adventures until one day, she had an idea that stuck with her. A story about her son, Henry, becoming a pirate.
What followed was Henry’s Pirate Adventure, an adorable, must-read for anyone who is looking for a fun and educational story for their child.
“It covers everything from weather to adventure to environmentalism and, of course, a few dangerous sea creatures.” – Livinia
The gorgeous illustrations are done by author, illustrator (and frequent tea drinker) Heath McKenzie (author of What Does Santa Do When It’s Not Christmas).
We have a feeling that this is just the beginning for Livinia’s writing career, with many more great stories to come. Get in quick and you can get a signed copy while stocks last!

About the Contributor
Before entering the exciting world of books, Bronwyn served in the Royal Australian Air Force, travelled extensively and worked (still does!) as a barista on the weekends. Books are her true passion. Bronwyn's debut fantasy novel Relic is coming out in 2019 with indie publishing house Talem Press. They are to publish her entire trilogy called The Relic Trilogy. In her spare time, Bronwyn writes, reads and enjoys keeping fit (which she undoes by eating loads of chocolate) with Martial Arts and personal training. She can't answer what her favourite book is but she has a soft spot for Peter Pan (J.M Barrie), Outlander (Diana Gabaldon), Stardust (Neil Gaiman), The Illuminae Files (Jay Kristoff and Amie Kaufman) and Six of Crows (Leigh Bardugo). Fantasy, sci-fi and YA make up the majority of her bookshelves.
