I am an Australian author who lives two hundred kilometres north of Sydney, on the beautiful and rugged east coast of Australia, in a place called Port Stephens, a sanctuary for dolphins and a Mecca for tourists who come to see an annual migration of 6,000 whales.

Port Stephens is a rural/country area made of small inland and coastal towns. The link below is to Port Stephens web site. I am in place called Nelson Bay.

Hi Jennifer,

I am a little in awe and very flattered to have received your message. I’m glad you enjoyed A Woman Transported.

Some of A Woman Transported sections were written, thirty years ago, especially the sections regarding Campbelltown. Sadly, I never kept a record of all the books I read. Mostly non-fiction and directly related to Sydney, Campbelltown, and aboriginal culture. The English section was mostly researched using google to take me where ever it went LOL

I did read most of The Australian Series by William Stuart Long (Vivian Stuart)

Below are some of my most used internet places.

Firstly,

Gutenberg Australia is a brilliant sources for books on Australia regarding convicts ect
At the end of the page there are links to a wealth of information.

Again, thanks for your kind words regarding A Woman Transported. If you ever need a beta reader, you know where I am ;)

“She descended the steps two at a time, pushed away the gloom and counted the cracks in the cobbled road, trying to block out the cold and the stench of dishonesty bred in men.”
Sharon Robards, A Woman Transported

“I would’ve loved to return to me home of Ireland, but Joshua never made the bloody pikes he was flogged for.”

“If you're 50 years old or younger, give every book about 50 pages before you decide to commit yourself to reading it, or give it up.

If you're over 50, which is when time gets shorter, subtract your age from 100 - the result is the number of pages you should read before deciding whether or not to quit. If you're 100 or over you get to judge the book by its cover, despite the dangers in doing so.”
Nancy Pearl

“If you tell the truth, you don't have to remember anything.”
Mark Twain

“Reading good books ruins you for enjoying bad books.”
Mary Ann Shaffer, The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society

“I don't understand a thing about this world: about people, and why they do the things they do. The more I find out, the more I uncover, the more I know, the less I understand.”
Craig Silvey, Jasper Jones

“Is it fair to have given us the memory of what was and the desire of what could be when we must suffer what is?”
