…IVANHOE GRAMMAR (who we used to BEAT at football (but does THAT matter, really?).
WHAT A GREAT SCHOOL! Pity about the kids though. Great teachers. Great visiting authors.

We talked about a few things like faces, and perspective and the History of Medicine. And a few of the recent books like “At the Beach” and “In the Bush” plus the new one: “ON the FARM” with Uncle Kev. That comes out in November,
just in time for shearing.

Last week I went to WARRAGUL, to St Paul’s. What a good school. Thanks, Mary.

Mungo Man

I’ve just been up to Mungo National Park. Heard of it? It’s a very, very old dry river bed up in south-west NSW where they found the skeleton of what they called ‘Mungo Man’. He was living there about 50000 years ago! Wow! You can walk around the lake and see remnants of ancient tools the aborigines of the area used. We got to sing around the campfire every night too, which is one my favourite things to do. But it’s back to the books now. I’m putting the finishing touches to my latest book about the infamous Uncle Kevin and his farm. Hope you’ve read the previous one ‘All the way to W.A’ to keep up with his adventures.

After years of being trapped in books I’ve escaped and made it to the web. Hooray for me!

I’ll be adding and changing things from time to time, and you might find a few surprises. There will be things you can download and updates on what I’m working on  (more books at the moment),  so visit me here as often as you like.

I’d love to hear about what you think about my new website, so drop me an e-mail sometime.
