How E M Foster’s dystopian world became our reality!

THIS WRITER’S LIFE: In Foster’s 1909 novella, The Machine Stops, people communicate via glowing screens but live lonely, isolated lives. His dystopian world has become our reality. We wrote The Sunday Story Club as an antidote to screens.

The Book Ninjas Strike Again!

THIS WRITER’S LIFE: So the , who set books loose on Australian public transport for commuters to take, read & return, dropped The Sunday Story Club off at Kyneton Station, my home town! I wrote 3 books about growing up on the Police Station in Kyneton. That is amazing synergy!

Doris and I wrote THE SUNDAY STORY CLUB so others can discover the magic running their own salon. And the idea that a random commuter might stumble across this idea is heart-warming.

The Stories Inside Us

When my co-author, Doris and I, ran our first salon, 12 women who had not met before sat in Doris’s lounge room looking at one another. We wondered if strangers would talk. Well, they do with the right questions. Not only strangers but also long term friends have been amazed to hear stories told by someone so close to them that they have never heard before.

We wanted to share the astounding experience of the salon so we wrote THE SUNDAY STORY CLUB so others can discover this magic running their own salon.

The Antidote to FAKE online Personas

My co-author Doris Brett & I were overwhelmed with the enthusiasm for our book THE SUNDAY STORY CLUB (PanMac), @The Happiness Conference in Sydney on Mon. There seems to be a hunger out there for open and honest conversations. This is one theme of the book, which we wrote as an antidote to all those FAKE online personas. (Yes! Irony alert! I’m online here.)

Not only do we share stories from our salon, we also encourage and show you how to run your own salon to benefit from deeper connections with others.

THIS WRITER’S LIFE: I’m in The Australian Today


Today The Australian has published an extract (The Story Club, SAT 22 JUN 2019) from my latest book, THE SUNDAY STORY CLUB (PanMacmillan), written with co-author Doris Brett. 

Those bloody teacups. The photographer brought them with him. It should have been wine glasses.

Those pea-brained, doped-out, tree-hugging Leftards are coming to take your guns

In TARGET 91, my satirical novel on American gun culture, I sourced pro-gun talk from gun owners chat rooms and gun club websites. Here is Gig DeKant, CEO of the (fictional) NGSA (National Gun and Shooters Association):

‘Those pea-brained, yellow-bellied, doped-out, tree-hugging, faggot Leftards have sympathizers working in each and every government agency and, mark my words, they are coming to take your guns.’

Guns, sex & an outrageous National Gun lobby CEO ranting SHOOT THE LOONY LEFTIES …

There are many twists and turns in the plot of TARGET 91. But with guns, sex and an outrageous (but fictional) National Gun and Shooters Association (NGSA) CEO ranting SHOOT THE LOONY LEFTIES, what’s not to like especially when the ‘LOONY LEFTIES’ start shooting back?

“To get anything done the radical has to commit evil acts for good causes.”
