Aaron Huggins: Launch Pad Student Becomes Published Author… at Fifteen!
In 2015, Aaron Huggins completed the Launch Pad Anthology Incursion at his school, Middle Kinglake Primary. He was a Grade 6 student, who dreamed of one day making a living as an author.
(Aaron is on the right, wearing a very not fake moustache.)
The following year, Aaron joined Launch Pad After School, where he enjoyed planning short stories, screenplays, and (here's some foreshadowing for you...) novels.
In 2018, at the age of 14, Aaron Huggins finished writing his first novel, which was accepted for publication by Launch Pad's parent company Up & Up Media.
The novel was launched in March 2018, and was a huge success.
Aaron is a perfect example of how Launch Pad can provide young writers with a fast pathway to seeing success as a writer. In the following months, Aaron will embark on a mini promotional tour, including Readings Bookstore, Supanova Pop-culture Convention, Library visits, school visits, and more.
Good luck, Aaron, and congratulations!

UPDATE: Exciting news: in 2020, Aaron will be joining the Launch Pad Team, as an official Launch Pad Host. He will be visiting schools around Victoria to share his writing journey and teach his craft. See: www.launchpad.vic.edu.au/our-team
