To the Light

One of my favourite books (that I’ve written).

The research was tough but someone had to do it!

  1. hi i am from Queen of peace altona meadows i like the twist at the end

  2. does story relate to you
    my favourite bit was when jamie got 3rd in the surfing comp
    i thought it was a boy

  3. I’d enjoyed the book. The book was pretty much about Jamie figuring about herself. I was really shocked to hear that Jamie was a girl! I learnt that not all rumours are true. “To The Light” was a great book you have written! Question: Is this story relative to your life and how?

  4. i loved that book

  5. My name is Tina and I’m from Queen of Peace parish primary school in Melbourne and I really liked this book. And it taught us to never give up, and to never believe rumours. And it was interesting how Jamie was actually a girl. And is there any chance you are Jamie’s father.

  6. Hi Patt, this is Kevin i really like this book because, i like you twisted it because i thought Jamie was a boy, but it was a girl. I learned a lot about surfing, like the green room and all thosw cool tricks i also learned that most rumors arent real.

  7. To pat
    My name is Katelyn and I go to Queen of peace. I really enjoyed reading
    your book. I learnt that rumors are not always true and that you should
    never go into things half hearted. I really enjoyed listening to Jamie
    talk about what it like in the green room [I’d like to get in there one
    day] and Jamie telling us about the mal rider [des turner].and I liked the
    twist that Jamie was really a girl. Do like surfing? Do you surf? I surf
    and I really enjoy it too.

  8. Dear Pat flynn i liked your book are you one of the charcters in the book ?

  9. Hi Pat, my name is Cecilia, and I’m from Queen of Peace, my class has read the “To The Light”, we love it! I really like your book “To the Light” because it was interesting.

  13. Thanks to Queen of Peace students for all the great comments.
    I love to surf but I’m not one of the characters in the book.
    You guys are right, rumours aren’t always true.
    Keep being the person you want to be!

  15. hi im brianna I have a couple questions for u what were your top 2 things you enjoyed in the book and what was your 3 things you didn’t enjoyed about the book

    • Hi Brianna
      I liked the water walking boots (p.76) and the twist in the story on page 91.
      I didn’t like Rory pushing Mark into the creek (p.32), Jamie getting cut by the board (p.5) and Jamie’s board getting broken on page 69.
      Hope that helps and hope you enjoy the book.

    • Hi Molly
      Thanks for your nice words about To the Light. Glad you enjoyed it!
      I became an author because I find it challenging and fun to write stories. It’s also cool when the stories get turned into books and I get nice messages from people like you!
