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.

The final countdown!

Woo-hoo - six more sleeps and I take the bus to Adelaide! As well as getting to spend time with Annalou, I will see my daughter, maybe a son and a grandchild or two and at least a couple more friends whom so far I only know from mailing lists. Six days of Writers Week - joy oh joy! I'm looking forward to hearing Lian Hearn and Margo Lanagan in particular, as well as enjoying the good company and all the other goodies on offer at the festival.

For the first time, I feel as if I've broken the back of the job list - I'm crossing off more items than I'm adding each day and that's got to be good. I still have to tidy the garden, save all essential files to the neat portable hard drive my son Scott bought me for Christmas, clean the house (I don't, usually!) and sort out some things for The Specusphere. Three books eye me balefully, reminding me that I have to write reviews and upload them ready for the new issue that goes live next Saturday. Starting on 1 March, The Specusphere goes bi-monthly, so there will be a flurry of activity in the last week of February, April, June and so on. Of course, the first big bumper issue has to coincide with my travel plans but that sort of synchronicity is par for the course, at least in my life. Isn't it the same for everyone?

Hope you manage to get all your 'jobs' completed before you go. Synchronicity like that is generally known as "sods" law round here.

Satima -- Lucky you. Enjoy!

Hmm - Sod and his friends have affected my memory:-) I forgot to mention that I also have a lit. review to edit for a client and a writing workshop to prepare for presentation on Thursday. Better sod off and get into the jobs!

But you're so right, Marilyn - I'm very lucky and once this week is out of the way I'll be dancing.

Hope you have a great time in Adelaide! And yes, sod's law indeed. ;)

Thanks, Alianore! Note to other readers - if you dig history, hie thee over to Alianore's blog. She is researching Edward II from toes to top knot and her blog is great reading. I wish I could narrow my focus like that. I love too many things: I am scholastically promiscuous:-( Mea culpa, mea culpa...
