Read, Write, Dance

Read, Write, Dance . Those three words could almost be my epitaph. Certainly (bearing and rearing children aside) they are the three activi...

About Me

My photo
I am a writer, editor, reviewer and dance teacher based in Perth, Western Australia. You might enjoy my books - The Dagger of Dresnia, the first book of the Talismans Trilogy, is available at all good online book shops. Book two, The Cloak of Challiver, will be available again shortly. Book three, The Seer of Syland, is in preparation. I trained in piano and singing at the NSW Conservatorium of Music. I also trained in dance (Scully-Borovansky, WAAPA) and drama (NIDA). Since 1987 I have been writing reviews of performances in all genres for a variety of publications, including Music Maker, ArtsWest, Dance Australia, The Australian and others. Now semi-retired, I still write occasionally for the ArtsHub website, and I still teach dance at Trinity School for Seniors, an outreach program of the Uniting Church in Perth.

My books

The first novel of my trilogy, The Talismans, is available as an e-book from Smashwords, Amazon and other online sellers. I do have paperbacks of The Dagger of Dresnia at the low price of $AU25 including postage within Australia. I also have a short story, 'La Belle Dame', in print - see Mythic Resonance below. Book two of the trilogy, The Cloak of Challiver, will be available again shortly. The best way to contact me is via Facebook!

Buy The Talismans

The first two books of The Talismans trilogy were published by Satalyte Publications, which, sadly, has gone out of business. Book one, The Dagger of Dresnia, is up on the usual bookselling web sites as an e-book, and I have a few hard copies to sell to those who prefer Real Paper. Book Two, The Cloak of Challiver, will be available soon. The easiest way to contact me is via Facebook.

No Place Like...

I am back in Perth for a week, having a wonderful time catching up with friends and family. I'm staying with different people almost every night and all are being incredibly hospitable. Thanks to you all - I won't embarrass you by naming you publicly, but you know who you are:-)

I'm at my son Bruce's place at the moment. We had a family dinner last night with several branches and twigs represented, which was great. Earlier in the day, I went to a meeting of the WA Shakespeare Club, one of the groups I've been missing terribly since I moved to Mount Gambier. During the coming days I'll be able to spend time with friends from the genealogy and SF communities, too, then on Friday night it's off to England via Dubai.

I'm reading all my friends' blogs but hardly doing any posting. Please forgive me for that - it's just because I'm using other people's computers and don't like to hog them for too long:-)

Hi, Satima! It is Friday, the 23d now, and you must be winging your way to England. Here's to a happy and safe journey, and we shall all await news of your arrival and first impressions.
Cheers,
Alison

Yup, I'm in England, staying a few days with my friend Diana in London (Sloane St, no less!) and trying to recover from a nasty dose of jet lag. The journey wasn't bad but long haul travel is never fun, is it? I saw three moderately entertaining movies en route. One was "The Queen" which is worth seeing for Helen Mirren's wonderful acting, although I really don't think it's appropriate to make movies about living people.

I'm looking forward to seeing you next month, Alison. Have a safe and pleasant trip over the pond!
