Here I am, back in my beautiful shop, after the most amazing holiday imaginable! For those few that don't know, I spent almost 5 weeks in Africa, touring with four buddies and one very brave tour guide. We drove 5,500 kilometres through Botswana, Zimbabwe and South Africa, and words cannot express the sights I saw or the emotions I felt! We ran out of superlatives along the way, as everything we experienced was so overwhelming.

I did live one of my fantasies, and walked with the lions in Zimbabwe. It was an unforgettable experience to run my hands along these magnificent creatures, and walk beside them casually and calmly. (Was that really me?)
So, now I am back into the swing of things in beautiful Peregian. I was very thrilled to meet Michael Robotham and Malla Nunn recently, as they toured for the "Get Reading" campaign. Jacquie from Sunshine Coast Librairies kindly invited me along to a lunch with Thomas Keneally at "Trio's", so I've been happily busy. I can't wait for the "Slice of Africa" evening with Bud Higgins in Eumundi - we're so proud of Bud for her brand new novel, "African Eulogy", and look forward to her next book; a collection of true stories taken from her life as a safari guide in Africa.

We have a very exciting literary lunch coming up, and this is the perfect time to look for fabulous Christmas books for yourself and for others. Don't forget that we will order any title you have a hankering for, and are always happy to layby and giftwrap.
