What a fabulous evening in Taree!

I know that country  Australia has a well deserved reputation for its warm welcome, but Taree outdid itself last night.

Thanks to Shelleyrae (of Book’d Out fame) and Danielle, Margie and Cheryl from Greater Taree Library for organising the evening.  Nikki from Manning Valley Books provided a lovely display of our books and was a wonderful dinner companion.  As always, Lisa Heidke was so very entertaining and the audience laughed in all the right places.

Brenda, a moderator and librarian on the Goodreads site made the drive from Newcastle and it was lovely to meet her in person. Thanks also to Kerri Williams for coming along and bringing her daughter – always lovely to see a familiar face in the crowd.

Finally, a huge thank you to all the fantastic readers who came along and made us both so very welcome 🙂 What more could we ask for?

Lisa, Shelleyrae and me

Me, Brenda and Lisa

  1. Brenda, it was so lovely to meet you in person. The Goodreads moderators and librarians do a wonderful job and all your hard work with the Australian Women Writers challenge is very much appreciated!

  2. A truly wonderful night, and a great pleasure to meet you Helene! I was thrilled to be able to chat with you and Lisa during the evening:)

  3. Sandy, the planets aligned perfectly for the trip. Flights ran on time, hire cars were where they should be, the weather fined up after the Sydney deluge and I’m all talked out! One very happy but tired author is home after a fabulous weekend 🙂
