Recently, Blaze has been working collaboratively with his mother, award winning and best selling author, Sally Morgan, his brother Ezekiel Kwaymullina and his sister Ambelin Kwaymullina, writing stories for children. Curly Saves Grandma's House was published in March 2009. This is the second book in a new series full of imagination, mischief and adventure, perfect for boys aged 7 to 9. Curly and The Fent, was published by Random House Australia in July 2008. See a review of Curly and the Fent at YARA online and in Reading Time, Vol 52, No 1. Praise for Curly Saves Grandma's House:
This is a great one for reluctant readers six and up because there's something for everyone: magic realism, adventure, action and humour. It also covers interesting territory when it comes to dealing with bullies and sticking up for what's right..
~The Sunday Age, 8 March 2009
The four authors are presently working on other writing projects both together and independently.

A stopwatch has sixty thin black lines, each marking off the seconds in a minute. But in Tom's stopwatch, they are also geateways to sixty different worlds!
