Stephanie Allan
Disc Filer

Stephanie is ten years old and files author's discs in alphabetical order when they come in so that it is easier for us to find them!

 
Gavin Allan

Gavin is the one who keeps everyone on their toes (That's a dad's job, isn't it?)  Talk to him about book production or singing.  He is the lead singer in a quartet (or two) who do mainly a cappella singing. He also sings in a Barbershop Chorus (Men in Harmony) in Perth.
