The Outer Sanctum

5th Quarter | Felice Arena

This week Nicole catches up with Felice Arena, bestselling author of the popular Specky Magee kids’ books. Specky is turning twenty and to celebrate, a 20th Anniversary edition has been released along with Felice’s brand new kids’ book, The Unstoppable Flying Flanagan – about the adventures of a young girl who loves her footy, even though it’s war time 1942, and girls aren’t allowed to play.
