Getting there

Friday, 29 April 2011 by

I hope everyone had a great Easter break…I know I did. Total relaxation, fishing, sitting on the beach, reading and spending time with my family. I took my laptop but didn’t get it out to write, which i’m glad as it was good to have a real break, a time out from everything.  Not that my mind didn’t stop thinking about Sarah’s Journey…my mind never stops…hey, i’m a woman! But after getting home…and over 6 loads of washing later…I got back into writing and have almost finished the new draft of Sarah’s Journey. Ali, my publisher is busy for the next few weeks with another book so I have some time up my sleeve to re-read SJ and polish it up a bit before I send it off.  Hopefully this version is a winner….holding my breath, crossing everything, mentally picturing a contract and all the rest.  So today, if I don’t have any interuptions, i’m

2011 Tour

Friday, 01 April 2011 by

Our trip started when we travelled 400 odd km’s to Margaret River, such a beautiful area, where we booked into Bridgefield and had this cute little cabin to ourselves. I love old things with history so I enjoyed looking around this place.  That night we walked down to the Margaret River Bookshop where we were welcomed by the wonderful Keith Mcleod and his son, (A family run business) and we all sat down in his fabulous shop for a chat with some of the locals.  It really made me envious of the local people for having such a wonderful bookshop right at their door step, with such friendly helpful staff. I’d kill to have a bookshop within a 300km radius!! We (My mum and I) can not believe how many wonderful, warm, welcoming people we met on our tour. And how many people who came to the talk that we knew or had some sort of connection to them.

Woolorama!

Wednesday, 16 March 2011 by

Well we had two wonderful days in Wagin for the Woolorama.  We met with the GWN crew for an interview on Thursday before we set up and then headed back to my cousins place to camp the night. We set out early the next morning along a back gravel road to cut across to Wagin…then our car died. Stranded…well we would have been if cousin Nigel hadn’t come along the same way. So we bundled all our stuff into his ute and made it on time.  My dad had to drive 150km to fit a coil from his speedway car onto ours so we could pick it up on the way home.  Sometimes I don’t know what i’d do without family. Nigel featured a lot over the two days, with him shearing in the clean shears competition.  I was at my stand signing books but I heard that a woman won the intermediate event, which is great
