Penguin Presents – Fiona Palmer

Monday, 07 May 2012 by

Not that long ago I blogged about the film crew that was in Pingaring, doing a doco for Penguin. Well it’s finally finished and Andre Sawenko has done a fantastic job putting all the shots together. (Especially my parts…I didn’t give him much to go on lol) So here it is, I hope you enjoy seeing where I live. After all, it’s what inspired me to write. 🙂    

Camera Crew

Sunday, 22 April 2012 by

I know its been ages since I’ve blogged but lifes just been a little crazy. School holidays haven’t helped, feels like the kids have been home for ages and still they don’t go back until Thurdsay! And now that hockey has started (yes, as I’m typing this my body is hurting) I’ll have even less time for things. But we had a little bit of excitement in out tiny 5 house town last week with the arrival of two fellas from over east. Andre, and his camera man Jono, flew, then drove, to our wheatbelt town to do some filming for Penguin for an online clip.  I was overjoyed that Penguin were putting in the effort but totally freaked out by the cameras. I don’t talk great, I have a brain and mouth which don’t tend to communicate to each other very well. So for the two days I was nervous as hell. (made worse by the

The Gates

Monday, 26 March 2012 by

Some of you will have your copy of The Road Home and you would have seen the Erindale gates on the inside.  I wanted to tell you about them as I took that photo. The gates were made by my grandad Colin Stone, long before I was born. He was from Kulin and brought land in Pingaring and married etc. He had a son and three daughters, my mum being the oldest. At some stage he brought more land, which he named Erindale after my Aunty Erin, who is the youngest. And so he made up these gates.  Later in life they sold the Erindale block so they could retire to Albany and the main farm, Gumlea, my Uncle continued to run. Even though another famer owns the land now, its still nice to drive past and see the history still standing there. It was the reason why the farm in the book is called Erindale. My

Albany signing

Monday, 19 March 2012 by

On Saturday I headed south to the coastal town/city of Albany. Love Albany. Such a pretty place. I spent my holidays there as a kid with my grandparents sometimes so it holds plenty of memories. Here I am with Lockie who set up the signing. Great display in his shop window.  I was there for just over an hour signing and big thanks to those who dropped by to get a book.  Love meeting fans, young and old. And I caught up with friends, which was great. We had the whole gang (kids) so we went to Venice after for lunch and then a stop by the shops for a quick look. (When you live that far from shops, its a delight to be able to check them out. ) My flowers from the signing. 🙂 We stayed the night in Albany, staying with friends who’s house has a gorgeous view of the ocean.  We went for a walk along

TRH – first chapter

Tuesday, 13 March 2012 by

Okay, here is the prologue (again) and first chapter. A week to go and it’ll be available in all stores 🙂 Yay.   Magic was happening. Even at the tender age of twelve, Lara felt the energy around her from the land. This afternoon was no different. A family of kangaroos grazed in a nearby paddock, their imposing figures framed in the afternoon glow as a little joey moved around in the dry, golden grass. They might even be big reds, but with the ochre hues from the setting sun behind them, Lara couldn’t be sure. ‘Get a load of that, Larz. Isn’t it just the duck’s bum?’ She studied the pink and gold sunset in the reflection of her father’s eyes. Oh, how she was going to miss him when she was sent away to boarding school next year: his brown stubble and wayward hair half hidden beneath his favourite red cap, the creases
