The Month that was… April 2023

Interview about A Perfect Stone

You may recall that earlier in the month I was interviewed by the Canadian Macedonian Historical Society about my novel, A Perfect Stone. Together with fellow Melbourne writer, Tom Petsinis who spoke about his two novels, Fitzroy Raw and Fog we talked about our motivations behind the stories, the research, the titles and what our process was. All three novels are centred around a Macedonian character and as there are so few fiction novels which feature Macedonian stories, the historical society in Canada was keen to know more.

The interview is now up on YouTube on the following link if you are interested. Check it out.

Where I went this month

We embarked on a road trip for ten days to enjoy the autumn countryside. We stopped in Albury and then Tumut and visited our nations capital, Canberra. We also spent a few days in Sydney enjoying the sights and sounds of the inner city. The autumn leaves were ignited with colour and I believe autumn is really the prettiest time of the year to travel. Of course, we were also lucky with spectacular weather.

What I’ve been reading

A mixed group of books this month all of which left an impact on me. Watch out for the reviews in the coming weeks.

Until next month…

How quickly a year passes. It’s the first anniversary since the launch of A Perfect Stone. So what’s happened in the last twelve months?

‘the author wastes not a word in evoking sympathy for those most vulnerable members of society,’ Helen

‘I loved the writing and the fastidious research and simply couldn’t put it down.‘ Meredith

‘This is a wonderful book. It is informative, wrenching and hopeful. A must-read.‘ Sara
