I love the Australian bush. I also love our Botanic Gardens especially the one in Canberra plus the café there has great coffee and cake! For those people contemplating a trip to Oz make sure you get to see our wonderful gardens – that is when travel is permitted.
To anyone who is interested in picture books – like agents – or anyone who wants to give feedback. It’s a long road for a writer. Sometimes you get lucky, other times it becomes a hard slog to keep going. I’m upping the ante so to speak and finally sharing some of my artwork – I am being brave!
Original water colour ideas for the book
A few odd drawings of first draft of story
Lunch time at work and no drawing pad so had to use my diary!
Not a great photo but inspiration was there!
Another lunch time at work – the diary comes in handy some days!
I’m very very excited to announce I will have 2 poems published with Australian Speculative Fiction. They are available on Amazon. Virgo is now in paperback!! The anthologies contain amazing stories from very talented Australian and New Zealand authors – and I’m swimming with the tide!
