Out with the Old

I’m filled with celebratory winter cheer this weekend in Sydney.

Yesterday at 4.15 pm I pressed the SEND button and watched my Currawong Manor edit disappear to my patient editor.
David returned from his week of swimming under a blue and mysteriously sparkling world with the Minke whales.
My short story SHADOWS which won last year’s Scarlet Stiletto Award for Sisters in Crime is in an anthology for Melbourne Books with other award-winning stories. I’m very honoured to be included amongst such prestigious company. You can read the details of the anthology HERE.
The recent interview I did with Tim Martain for the Hobart Mercury Saturday Magazine came out last week. I was very chuffed to make the cover page with my Agatha Christie inspired shot. The spread featured Poppy Gee and Livia Day who I recently appeared in Melbourne with for a Sisters in Crime panel. I shall put the jpegs up when I get a chance to scan them.

And my favourite, Johnny Depp also made the cover of Rolling Stone this week looking a whole lot cooler than yours truly.

The Super Moon brought some unexpected elements to my life in the form of releasing aspects of my life that no longer served my highest good.

Lest we forget

Lest we forget

I am off to my mountains hideaway to spend some time reading, relaxing, writing in a notebook for my current novel, and watching birds in mountain winter skies. I hope it is misty and we are longing for snow.
Enjoy the waning moon. xx

    Great, I’m so looking forward to reading Currawong Manor. You are already working on a new novel? anything you can share at this stage? The suspense is too much!

      Dear Jess, thanks for your kind words. So appreciated. I actually have Currawong Manor coming out in Australia early next year. I am finishing off a coming of age novel and planning another couple of mysteries in the same style of Poet’s Cottage. I can promise secrets, murder, Bohemia, twists and hopefully suspense in buckets! Thank you for your support xx

    What a lovely week for you, and how great that you’re sharing your joy in your blog. Sometimes I think writers don’t celebrate enough when wonderful things happen – it’s almost as if we’re waiting for the next rejection – so it was lovely to read a post all about happiness and celebration. Well done to you!

    Thank you Natasha, I agree we don’t celebrate all the milestones enough. I have been really enjoying your wonderful website and blog. You have inspired me to finally get myself sorted and try to get myself something a little flasher. xx
