We’ve been busy.
Since the launch another five short stories have gone up on the website, along with three outlines of the genesis of each published novel, (NOVELS heading) with pictures. Don’t forget you can click on the pictures in website documents to enlarge them We hope you enjoy these.
We’ve also been busy arranging visits to various and organisations for later this year and into next year. For example, next Tuesday we are in Caversham speaking to the Seniors’ Healthy Active Group Association, which we’re told operates under the wonderful acronym of SHAGAS. (We presented to today and had a great time with a group of about forty people.)
Early last week we returned to the Central Wheatbelt and Cunderdin to present on the three novels. Last time we visited was when the April rains came and everyone one was on tractors. So Tania Daniels, the coordinator of the Cunderdin Community Resource Centre (CRC) organised for us to return.
We had a great evening with lovely people like Tania Daniels, Dennis Whisson, who chairs the committee, Antoinette from the committee, Janet Whisson, who is the principal of Meckering Primary School and many others. Thanks to them all for a good night of wine, cheese and chatter.
By that, I mean I have a little history in the region. In the afternoon, before the presentation, Karen and I walked over the road to the old pumping station, which is now a museum. At the presentation, I skited that as a kid at Tammin Primary School, I saw the pumping station billowing smoke and still operating. That was just before it closed down in 1956. My dad was the principal of Tammin School, and mum, for some of my time at the school, was my teacher. But as well as stirring memories, the exhibits and the historical stories, both of the pipeline and of Cunderdin, were special.
