I visited Maleny for a weekend and spent time happily in that beautiful tropical environment with my old friend Gary Crew, admiring his extravagant garden and talking things literary for 2017! Watch this space.

We collaborated many years ago on an epistolary novel Dear Venny Dear Saffron, which sold into Ireland and Germany, as well of course, as in Australia. It was quite an appropriate writing project as I was travelling widely at that time.

We filled up each others’ studies with long faxes as the characters we had created came to life.

We are presently working on a wonderful idea, soon to be revealed…
