Tag Archives: Christmas


Thank you to everyone who has spent time and taken interest in my blog this year. It’s been a privilege to bring you my thoughts on what I’ve read as well as what I’ve been doing.

For some, this time of the year can be difficult and I wish you and your families a safe, happy and healthy time doing what you enjoy the most.

As for me, I’ll be spending Christmas day with my extended family eating an array of seafood, turkey and a variety of salads on what is expected to be a very hot day in Melbourne.

And after that I’m hoping to do what I love best and that is, catch up on some reading and do a bit of writing.

Until next time…

’tis the season

Thank you to everyone who provided me with so much support throughout the year. The many lovely responses to the publication of ‘Climbing the Coconut Tree’ has been truly amazing and beyond my expectations.

One year later; my collection of short stories is nearly complete and I’m over the half way mark for my second novel.  I’ll let you know more about these two projects early next year.

So for now, I’m going to relax (as much as anyone can in the lead up to Christmas) for a couple of weeks enjoying a hot summer in Melbourne.

I’d like to wish you and your families a joyous, peaceful  Christmas and may 2017 bring everything you hope for.
