Big Red has been sighted in bookshops. Very exciting.
And Seadog is back in stock. Fresh from his shortlisting in the Speech Pathology Award.
What were you doing on this wintery-type day in Melbourne? I spent the day with my cousin’s daughter (so … my second cousin?) revisiting our shared history.
She was keen to see where my aunt – her grandmother – had worked. We did that, but we also looked specifically and more generally at history.
I told her about our ancestors who had pubs in Richmond and the city and may or may not have had associations with well-known crime figures.
We talked about Melbourne city and how it came to be laid out as it is.
I talked about a couple of my upcoming books about women and history and quilts and ship-journeys.
She talked about her plans for short, medium and long term living.
Oh, and we ate cake. 🙂
It’s always fascinating to hear someone else read your work. Here’s There Was an Old Sailor being read by Tetera Faulkner from Emirates Western Force.
Very excited to see Seadog on the Speech Pathology shortlist. 🙂
