My USA Book Tour (or to be more exact - my book's tour of the USA)

With mere hours remaining before we were due to leave for the airport, my book and I went for one last walk along the beach before setting off on our grand adventure to the USA. It was a tad chilly down there with autumn upon us but nowhere near as cold as what we could expect to experience on our arrival into New York City.


We departed Perth at around midnight and arrived in Hong Kong 7 hours and twenty minutes later. We got several days worth of exercise traversing the miles between departure gates before we found the lounge. We'd needed to stop for a breather on the way and got a nice view of the planes on the Tarmac. Our connecting flight to New York has been delayed by a couple of hours so thankfully we have a comfortable place to cool our heels.

Next stop New York!!!!

Grabbing the Muse in New Mexico

I was thrilled when Julie Ford Oliver sent me this fabulous photo of herself with my book - which she is half-way through reading. She has the Organ Mountains, New Mexico behind her in the background. What a stunning landscape - it reminds me very much of Australia's beautiful red centre! It's so exciting for me to see my book finding its way to different parts of the world. Thanks Julie!

Julie is an amazing artist who is an ongoing inspiration to me. Her artwork is very original and dynamic and she makes even the trickiest subjects look easy. She is very supportive and generous to other artists and shares many insights into her artistic life on her blog - which you can visit here, and you can visit her website by clicking here.
