As an only child of older migrant parents, I was exposed to a different culture and outlook as I growing up in the suburbs of Sydney. At the age of 10 I became interested in history and travel, and in sixth grade my teacher commented on my flair for writing.

After a lot of travel and reading about history - I started with Thor Heyerdahl's adventures which led me to other books about unexplained mysteries such as pyramids and other megaliths around the world - I came to a point where I wanted to put it all together in an epic fantasy novel.

What Really Is Magic?

What really is Magic?

What do you think of when you hear the word Magic? Do you think of a magician pulling a rabbit out of a hat, or maybe you prefer a more sophisticated illusionist like David Copperfield? Maybe you think of Merlin the Magician from the Arthurian legend, or Harry Potter’s fun world of magic. You might even think of New Age subjects like Wicca or Shamanism, perhaps even esoteric Read more of this blog post »

No Holiday From Murder by Bobby Underwood
"In the introduction to these two wonderful tales, Bobby Underwood states that “each story is set during the 1930s, but with a minimum of nostalgia. Rather, these stories have the flavor of being written during that time period”.

Soft Winter Light by Bobby Underwood
"Seldom have I found such a beautiful and poignant short story as SOFT WINTER LIGHT. This lovely tale is so full of emotion, the reader should keep a box of Kleenex handy.

Hi Anthea - thanks for the nice message (being impressed by my list of published books) I try to write a book in the Rhuna series once a year, and so far I'm managing quite well. What about you? Are you planning to write another book?

Yes, I was a Sydneysider until about 6-7 years ago, when we moved here to Tumut. I lived in Chatswood and then in Manly for many years. Don't miss it now - Tumut is lovely!

Bobby has started reading your book and tells me that you write very well!

Cheers,
Barbara
