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.

Panic Time

Two more days before I leave. Two days to do three days' work. Everything takes longer than I expect and every job reveals two more.

But ready or not, as of Friday afternoon, I'm on the road again. I will see some of you in Adelaide, some in Perth, others in the UK and Germany. Sadly, there are some of you I won't see at all but it's a small world and who knows? You might get to my neck of the woods at some stage:-) And those of you I'm leaving behind, why, I shall look forward to seeing you when I get back!

While I'm away I will have access to e-mail but I'd appreciate it if we could keep traffic to a minimum. Please, no jokes or forwards! It would be cool if you would visit my blog now and then and leave the odd message. I'll update it as often as I can with news of my travels and meetings with old and new friends. I decided on this means of staying in touch rather than round robin e-mails because I know not everyone really wants them. On a blog you don't have to feel obliged to answer or even to look at the darned thing in the first place:-) However, it will be great to get your messages, if you feel like stopping by. If you've never left a message on a blog before, don't be scared - just click at the bottom of the post where it says "comments". That will take you to a new page where you can leave a message. You will have to copy down a set of letters to prove you're human, too. That's to prevent access by crawl bots - software set up to scour the web looking for e-mail addresses for their unscrupulous creators to spam or unprotected blogs where they can leave advertising.

It's my son Kurt's birthday tomorrow. And it was niece Frances's yesterday. Happy birthday, guys - and happy birthday to all the Aquarians reading this, too!

Next time I blog I'll probably be in Adelaide or even Perth. I hope you'll visit again late next week. Be well and happy meantime!

Hi Satima, This is my first time as a bloggist....or is it blogger...or bloggian? Anyway, that's a cool site. I'll have to think of doing that myself. I was surprised to see you were gone for so long...not sure why, because I'm sure you probably told me...but you know my memory these days! Looking forward to seeing you on the 15th, and then again in May. Have a safe, happy, relaxing journey....enjoy it all! Lots of love and best wishes, Cam

Hey, Cam, good to hear from you on my blog:-) It would be cool if you got a blog too as I know you'd have heaps of interesting things to put up!

Roll on Valentine and I'll see you the next day!
