A new lease of life for my books

As you know, I was bitterly disappointed when Satalyte shut up shop as it might have meant the end of my admittedly short career as a publi...

About Me

I am a writer, editor, reviewer and dance teacher based in Perth, Western Australia.

My books

The first two novels of my trilogy, The Talismans, are not available as e-books at present, but I expect to get them back online shortly. However, I do have paperbacks of The Dagger of Dresnia at the low price of $25 including postage within Australia. I also have a short story, 'La Belle Dame', in print - see Mythic Resonance below. 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. I hope to see my books back on Amazon under a new publisher in the near future.

Sort-of Snow

A sunny-and-snowy-by-turns kind of day, with rough weather possibly forecast for tomorrow. Of course, it's to be expected up this way, even in spring - I'm in Richmond, Yorkshire, which is quite a long way oop north, staying with old friends Jag and Laxmi and their two lovely daughters. It is just like being with family, especially as today is Mothers' Day in England and I am missing my own children and grandchildren.

Yesterday Jag and Laxmi drove me to the Thirsk area where I oohed and aahed over the pretty villages of the district. My SUFFILL ancestors lived there for centuries before moving down to Barnsley in about 1840 and I was delighted to walk streets where they would have walked and to see the lovely old church at Felixkirk where they did most of their hatching, matching and dispatching. Thirsk is also James Heriot country and we dutifully posed for photos outside his old vetinary surgery.

Tomorrow I hope to travel south to stay a day or two with e-cousins on the KILBURN line who live close to the heartlands of our branch of that family, near Dewsbury.

Hey Mum.. sounds like you're having a grand adventure .. i'm jealous! I want to stand in some of those ancient places and feel the lives that played out there.
Didn't realise mother's day was different there - hope you had a lovely time with substitute rellies!
