I just wanted to share my professional website with you.  The picture above is of the front cover. You can find the website by clicking  HERE or on the image above.  It includes some video, links to books in progress, and sound cloud as well.

It has been wonderful obtaining feedback, from coworkers or participants in  projects completed in the past, for the testimonials section.  It is interesting to see yourself through the eyes of colleagues. I’ve also created a new business card which visually matches up with the site which arrived this morning!

I am delighted to be working on editing my second interview for this year; it is with the inspirational Cairns based singer songwriter Shirley Lynn who is also part of a band Blue Tonic and the duo Silktones. The conversation with Shirley was motivational and informative.  I loved finding out more about her journey and look forward to sharing it with you soon.

I so relate to song writers especially those who work diligently on their craft and wish to leave a legacy of stories and vision through the power of music.

I am looking forward to attending Alesa Lajana’s concert in September and hearing some the songs from the Hidden Histories project.

I’ve mapped out my writing projects and am trying to tackle them methodically.   A memoirs is well in progress and I am in the process of lining up people to read the first version when it’s finished.  A children’s picture book idea has now headed into its second draft after feedback from a critique group.

I’m on the hunt for photographs friends took when I was a child in Tasmania, and can’t wait to see what they are able to send me.  Some collections of poetry are now well on the way and I am sure to start sharing them soon.   The ebook for After Yasi is nearly finished.  I’ve sent off another submission to an anthology as well as a short story to a competitions, and will do the usual and forget about it for several months and hope that the work makes it into the anthology or gains some notice in the story competition.

Thank you so much to all the blog readers who have been following and encouraging  my creative journey, and a special thank you  Jenni M., Danny, Joanna, Gail, Pam, Talitha, Di,  Helen P. and my dear daughter for their kindnesses, and keeping me motivated, and ever focused on the reasons that I write and develop my craft.

All the best to any of my blog readers working to share their voice in the crowded world of authors and storytellers.  Don’t forget your uniqueness and bring that and your imagination into the work that you create.  I hope your dreams come true.
