Win a Christmas pack!

Monday, 04 November 2013 by

It’s finally here! My special Christmas pack. (Yes, it’s time to start thinking about Christmas!) I’m running it early, so I have time to post out the books to the winner. (Some may want to split the pack up and use as presents for others. The winner can let me know who you want the books signed to.) The pack is every one of my books, signed.  You get everything you see in this picture, except my black sheet! 🙂 (Bundle worth over $100) All you have to do to enter is send an email to and tell me who you would want this pack for. The competition starts on the 4th November and ends on the 18th November. A random winner will be drawn in the morning at 7am, West Aussie time. Good luck. 🙂

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. 🙂    

Buying signed books

Sunday, 26 February 2012 by

I get emails from people asking to buy signed books. This is not a problem. 🙂 I love the fact that you want my books, and I’m honoured that you would like them personally signed. I have just set up an ebay account so if you prefer to buy them that way, just search for the books or here are the links to their pages. The Family Farm           Heart of Gold           I will have The Road Home up, close to its release date. Alternatively you can send me an email requesting a book and providing me with your address. I will then get back to you with costs, including postage and my bank details. Once payment has come through I will post your book/s straight off. Although don’t expect a speedy delivery. To Perth sometimes can only a few days but over east could take up to two weeks.  Snail

The Luck of the Red Earth

Saturday, 11 February 2012 by

I was very excited to stumble across my book on the German Random House website. (Even though I know NO German, I still managed to navigate to the authors page and find my book) It was great to see it for the first time.  They re-market it, so The Family Farm became The Luck of the Red Earth. (I google translated it and then took it next door to my German neighbour to double check lol) It will be released in Germany on April 1st.   I love the colours, even though its nothing like where the book is set but I understand it’s made to stand out as ‘Australian’. Heart of Gold has also been signed up with the Diana Verlag imprint of Random House. I’m not sure when it will be out, but they took two years to get The Family Farm out, so I won’t hold my breath for any time soon. 🙂 Now I look

Heart of Gold B format

Tuesday, 07 February 2012 by

  This box arrived a few days ago. I love getting new books in the mail, mine or others. Something magical about new things. 🙂 This is the B format of Heart of Gold. Its a cheaper smaller version which is going on sale at the end of February.  What do you think of the bright sunset? Or did you prefer the blue skies better? At the moment I’m close to finishing my fourth book which is called Bundara Skies, or Under Bundara Skies. (The last one might be too much of a mouthful!) But don’t get used to that name, as it will probably change. I don’t have much luck with titles. The Family Farm was called Gumlea Heart of Gold was called The Cleanest Cut The Road Home was called The Last Link….but only briefly…I just needed a name to save the file in lol. But I’m not fussed on what the title

All over for another year.

Sunday, 28 August 2011 by

Yes, it’s all over. Two full days sitting behind this table chatting to people from all over and signing books. Three nights camping in the freezing cold, thank goodness for eletric blankets!  And most of all thank goodness for mum who came along to help. Bringing regular hot cuppa’s and watching the stall while I ducked off for a look-see. (Thanks mum!) It also helped sharing our stall space with two lovely people,George and Gabby.  I didn’t get to see too many people I knew but the lovely Rachael Blair (Rach Johns) and her three gorgeous boys, stopped by for a quick hello. I ran a competition for those who wanted to enter for a chance to win both my books and I drew it yesterday. The winner of both books is : Liz Marcus from Greenmount. Books will be posted at the start of next week Liz. And I also did a runner up
