I've milked cows. I've kept bees and made cheese. I bartered my Gouda for wine at a boutique vineyard near our home in The Hunter Valley, New South Wales.
A short stint with horses saw me falling off and breaking my best arm. It gave me second thoughts on animals of the equine persuasion.
Being mother to five is perhaps my greatest achievement, but writing comes a close second. After all, we two have been friends for such a long time.

The Dry by Jane Harper
"Booooring"
The Dry by Jane Harper
"I was really bored reading this book. Nothing happens and the characters are very formulaic. How does these books get such high star ratings? And the comments on the jacket make it seem like it's the greatest book ever written...."
