Raising money for Queensland

Katrina Germein, Emily Gale, Kate Gordon and I have got together to raise money for the QLD Flood victims. I don’t know about you, but I’ve stood in front of the TV crying at the images and feeling so completely helpless. I couldn’t volunteer with the clean up, from down at the bottom of WA!…

Colours

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. Our family certainly did, although we and the rest of Perth, sweltered through  38+ degrees during the ‘big’ day! It really has got me beat why Father Christmas would want to wear such a heavy outfit,  as he pops into our houses during Christmas eve. In fact…

Book Club – Phillipa Fioretti

We had our first virtual book club meeting last Saturday and this is where I was sitting while we were all chatting! I organised it for a Saturday morning, while the kids were doing their swimming lessons; I knew I would have to be in one place for at least an hour, that way! I think the…

Leavin’ on a jet plane

‘I’m leaving, on a jet plane…!’ Today I’m packing up my old RM boots and my new bag and I’m heading to Sydney! I feel like I’m saying ‘I’m going to Paris’ or some other exotic location, when I say I’m off to Sydney, because I haven’t been there since I was about seven! So…

NSW book tour

What a journey Blue Skies is leading me on! I’m going to NSW to meet my whole Allen and Unwin team, who are instrumental in making my books as good as they can be. These women have become friends, through the writing process and I can tell you that A&U are the best team to have behind…

Dalgety Women’s Day 2010

I’m really privileged to be asked to speak at the Dalgety Women’s Day in NSW on the 28th of April. I’m really excited about this, as I know these days for women are so important in building the friendships and camaraderie, that is needed to deal with life of the land. As farmers we need…
