Jennifer St George

There are some people who just ooze style, no matter what time of day or night it is, not matter what situation is unfolding, no matter how much mayhem surrounds them.  Today’s blog guest, Jennifer St George is one of those. I’ve watched her in action at RWA conferences and thought, ‘Wow!’ Now after reading Continue reading

The Marion Centre

Yesterday was the final day of my South Australia tour and it didn’t get off to the most seamless of starts when our flight from Mt Gambier was delayed by almost 2 hours… One of the issues for regional flying is always going to be availability of spare parts and engineers when something goes wrong Continue reading


I’ve never been to the Barossa Valley so today was already set to be special. I’d googled Seppeltsfield Winery and thought it looked rather swish, but the photos don’t do it justice. It’s the oldest winery in the Barossa and its heritage shows in the magnificent buildings, stately old trees and wonderful aged oak barrels. Continue reading

Knowledge in Gosnells

Once I got over the shock of 3 degrees on the temperature gauge the walk to the Green House was an invigorating start to the day. Drop by the website for the Green House and check out the time lapse video of the restaurant’s construction. It is truly unique with delicious food and a quirky Continue reading


The drive from Bunbury to Ellenbrook took a little longer than planned this morning with a car and a truck having a nasty altercation on the highway causing a major disruption. Then, just when we thought we’d make it on time despite the delay, a runaway trailer from a B-Double took out some traffic lights. Continue reading

The sun shone on Bunbury and Eaton

Despite the rain pelting down we left Perth under a double rainbow – an auspicious start which delivered on its promise. The audience at Bunbury Library were lovely and asked some excellent questions. Thanks to Debra and her team for hosting the event. It was great to meet you all. I did venture out for a Continue reading

Not even fog could stop us getting to Kalamunda Library!

After a flying visit to see Mum before I left Brisbane we got to the airport to discover fog in Sydney was playing havoc with airline schedules. Instead of arriving in Perth with plenty of time to check into the hotel and enjoy Perth’s ambience Ali, my publicist from Get Reading Australia for this leg Continue reading

Warwick, Chermside now onto Perth!

It’s been a while since I’ve visited Warwick, but driving up through Cunningham’s Gap, with the rain coming down and lines of large trucks groaning under their load as they laboured up the incline, brought back many memories. As we crested the hill approaching Warwick and several churches poked their spires up through the trees Continue reading

Get Reading in Caloundra and Redcliffe

I started the day in a rainy Cairns and finished in a chilly Brisbane. Along the way I chatted with readers, writers and an old friend in Caloundra and Redcliffe. Thanks to Belinda from Get Reading I was on time and on track – nothing more a pilot could ask for! Thanks to Simone and Continue reading

Good news week!

Capt G and Zeus are suffering from too much excitement this week. Here we are on a gorgeous Sunday morning and my boys are both snoring their heads off!! Evidence is indisputable. I, on the other hand, am still bouncing off the floors and the ceilings! (There will no photographs of that particular manoeuvre!) This Continue reading
