It was a timely decision to designate this year as the National Year of Reading. Literacy is fundamental to living in our society, to meeting the demands of everyday life and to discovering the magic contained within books. Yet even when we are literate, we run the risk of losing that magic. In t... Read more of this blog post »

Flight (Literature & Fiction)
1 chapters   —   updated Jan 30, 2012 08:42PM
Description: ‘That one will be the death of her father … Mark my words, the death of him.’ So says the prophecy that accompanies Fern's birth. Her mother, fearing the wrath of the baby’s father, is forced to give Fern up for adoption. Twenty years later Fern is haunted by the feeling that something is very wrong. Her family and friends think she is losing her mind, but Fern is convinced that someone is after her. Seeking to unlock the mystery, Fern takes flight onto the streets of Sydney, where she meets two unlikely allies: Cassie, a woman cursed with the gift of clairvoyance, and Adam, an ex-soldier tormented by his past. As danger looms, Fern and Adam embark on an adventure which takes them far into the labyrinthine depths of the Tasmanian wilderness, where Fern must finally confront her demons. Interwoven with myth and metaphor, Flight is a compelling and original story; sometimes eerie, sometimes earthy, always spellbinding. ‘An adventure story that encapsulates both a physical and spiritual journey ... interesting and original ... with some startling contrasts between the ordinary and extraordinary’ Bookseller + Publisher

Ernest Hemingway
“From things that have happened and from things as they exist and from all things that you know and all those you cannot know, you make something through your invention that is not a representation but a whole new thing truer than anything true and alive, and you make it alive, and if you make it well enough you give it immortality. That is why you write and for no other reason that you know of. But what about all the reasons that no one knows?”
Ernest Hemingway
