My car becomes Rudolph!

We reflect on what has been accomplished during 2017 and pat ourselves on the back for getting so much done while life has thrown us into the whirlpool of life.

Christmas 2017 car decoratedApart from having travelled overseas and enjoyed a wonderful holiday seeing Cornwall/Devon, then meeting relatives in Birmingham, indulging in the Beatles experience in Liverpool then Christmas 2017 front fence decoratedgoing to Ireland to see that beautiful landscape and have a pint or two or three, I’ve had a huge year on the writing front.

This culminated in a blog tour-de-force which I ensured reached the world with interviews of all of our eight ladies in the group, showcasing our backgrounds and creative styles. Our book launch was a hoot and we’ve sold many copies of our books.

Kate has our books on Amazon too!

The e-book is also available on the Amazon Australia website (AU$):
