About this author

I grew up in a small Australian town called Orbost in the state of Victoria. I spent my childhood chasing snakes and lizards down hollow logs, playing Hansel and Gretel in the bush with my brothers, climbing trees, searching the local rubbish tip for books to read and generally behaving like a feral child.

My first novel, Whisper My Secret, is now available as an ebook: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B007JP88NA
The sequel to Whisper My Secret is Mother of Ten:

The song was still in progress when I arriv... Read more of this blog post »

Hi Emily. My apologies if I did not acknowledge your comment. Please don't think me rude; I am just a techie tenderfoot! JB :-)

Thanks Carole. Great to hear from you. Your comment has verified that I must have done everything correctly in order to add Trapped in Gondwana: Book 2 to the Goodreads listing. I always bumble with these things until I become used to the particular platform. By the time I get to Book 7 I guess I'll be pretty comfortable with the Goodreads process. (Maybe!) Like you, I don't always have time to pop into Goodreads or to meet the reading challenges but I do try.

Looking forward to coffee and chat or even grog and gossip in Feb. JB :-)

C.A. Hocking Hey JB! Haven't been on Goodreads for a few weeks, too busy writing. Just saw you'd launched the second in your Gondwana Land series. BIG congratulations! Planning on reading both before I see you in February.
Kind Regards
