I know it’s a first world problem, but being an author comes with the responsibility of an ‘author photo’. I love being behind the lens of a camera, but don’t enjoy being in front of it. However, with Return To Roseglen only weeks away from release, I needed to update my photo. Capt G assured me people wouldn’t recognise me at any of the reader events if I kept using the photo from the magazine article in the Cairns Profile back in 2012. He may have a point… Charlotte Rose did take some wonderful shots, but sometime in the last 6 years I’ve developed laugh lines, or something similar, and silver in my hair!
Luckily for me Kathy Mexted is a friend who’s talented with a camera and lives outside of Melbourne. She was kind enough to invite us to stay with her and her family for a couple of nights. By the time I left, after having a lovely time exploring the district with her and talking writing and photography, I was spoilt for choice with so many lovely photos. But then comes the tough decision. Which one to use??
I’ve decided to use all of them. Which one do you prefer?
