Island of the Barking Dog

The four friends are dismal students at most things they try – schoolwork, and particularly in sports. When they all entered a race in the swimming carnival at the beginning of the year, the rest of the school criticised their poor performance. After the carnival, they went to their favourite spot by the river to get away from the rest of the school. It was there that they heard a dog barking on the island in the middle of the river where the water was the widest. They swam with great difficulty to the island to find out what was going on. Over the following months, they had to care for the dog and feed it. That meant swimming across the river to the island twice a day, every day, even in winter.

Dad Kept Bees

When beekeeping became an important part of their life, the family wasn’t prepared for the surprises in store for them, sometimes embarrassing, mostly humorous, but always fun, especially for the little boy whose job it was to follow his dad around the countryside taking the bees to different locations, following the honey flow, and meeting the characters from the Australian bush. Life on their own new property became a joy to them all, especially when the boy wandered off to meet other children and explore the history of the area. Like most plans, there were many upsets and disappointments, but there was a happy family who finally got what each of them dreamed of.

Secret of the Ruin

A very weird fast-moving adventure story where the ghost of the ruin takes Oliver and Charlotte to the underground world of the blue creatures.

One Of My Lives

From the platform of the author’s curiosity as to the purpose of her life, with its seemingly unconnected and diverse phases, the writing takes shape under the direction of ‘the other’—the writer’s muse. It is in this way the underlying premise slowly guides the story. Christina, born the second female child of an Australian farming family in the nineteen twenties, has had every aspect of her life journey planned by higher spirits to prepare her for her main purpose which is to co-parent progeny to carry forward a specific rare gene vital to the progress of humanity. Disclosed to her subconscious in a dream, she hears herself eagerly agreeing to the life path laid out for her. It gives her a longed-for opportunity to become a mother, with all that that entails, she having been barren in all prior lives.
