What I’m reading right now… I’m enjoying Season of Shadow and Light by Jenn J McLeod. It’s the third book in the Seasons series and I’m hooked!
My favourite book growing up… Anne of Green Gables captured my heart when I was stuck inside with a broken arm during school holidays. Anne and her quirky, feisty courage seemed so real – I wanted to fly to Canada immediately.
My all time favourite book is… Hungry as the Sea by Wilbur Smith – my copy is dog-eared from being reread…
The book I would recommend everyone to read... The Book Thief because it’s beautifully written, clever, insightful and moving.
The book I wish I wrote… I recently read the Hunger Games trilogy. It’s different, eerily prophetic and the writing is wonderful.
My guilty reading pleasure is… Historical romances – they’re my ‘go to’ stories when all I want to do is relax and escape – anything by Anna Campbell, Christina Brookes or Anne Gracie will do the trick!
The book on my bookshelf that I have never read… That would be the manual for the chart plotter onboard Roobinesque! I definitely subscribe to the ‘when all else fails read the manual!’
My book is... set in beautiful North Queensland – everyone should visit at least once in their lives!
I’ll never forget the first time I... flew an aircraft solo – awesome!
My favourite place is... aboard our home, a 40ft Lagoon catamaran called Roobinesque.
I regret... not recording my Dad’s life story before his memory failed.
I remember...diving into the Southern Ocean off the coast of Antarctica. I’ve never been so cold in my life.
The one piece of advice I should have listened to but didn’t... was study hard at school…
I love... the night sky in the outback or moored at an outer reef.
I hate... finding plastic rubbish floating in our oceans.
I wish... the world was a more tolerant place.
I can’t say no to... a request from a reader…
Yesterday, I... helped my Mum celebrate her 93rd birthday.
