The launch of Open Your Eyes, Jackson Ryder, last Wednesday at the Central Library in Wellington was a ripping success! The Deputy Head of Mission of the Mexican Embassy, Daniela Gil Sevilla, was in attendance. Excellent speeches were given by Escalator Editor, Mary Jane Duffy, and internationally renowned sculptor, Owen Mapp who said, ‘…Rudy has put together a story that holds the reader on to the next page until finished. He has generated a plot that both teenagers and adults will find compulsive reading.’

Rudy also featured in this week’s Independent Herald Newspaper in an outstanding Q&A article written by Sharnahea Wilson.
