Following on from the success of Saved!!! which cam out in July 2019, Williams and illustrator Lucinda Gifford have teamed up again for Goal!!! 

The book once again follows little Lydia who is moving to the big city from the desert. It's a  book about friendship, sport, and teamwork. The series draws inspiration from Williams' own childhood, growing up in the desert in Western Australia before moving to Canberra.
