Jenn McLeod

G'day :)

Today I'm chatting with the extremely talented, Jenn McLeod, about her new release, Simmering Season. 

No stranger to embracing a second chance or trying something different, Jenn took the first tentative steps towards her tree change in 2004, escaping Sydney’s corporate chaos to buy a small cafe in the seaside town of Sawtell.

Moving to the country was like coming home and she now spends her days maintaining her NSW property and writing contemporary Australian fiction—life-affirming novels of small town life and the country roots that run deep.

Ian Parkes-A Youth Not Wasted

    G’day :)
I’m very excited to announce my guest today, the amazingly talented and down-to-earth Australian Author, Ian Parkes. I'm presently half way through reading Ian’s biographical book,A Youth Not Wasted, and I’m hooked. He had me hungry to learn of his adventurous life in the outback from the get go.
This is a snippet of his prologue, which when I read it, moved me beyond anything I have read in the rural genre thus far…
‘I lay lightly on my back, looking up, feeling the earth’s weight beneath me, observing the infinite firmament above through the thin veil of foliage.

Only 4 more sleeps and Christmas is upon us. How exciting!
I adore Christmas and all that it brings. It is an occasion where you can spend quality time with your family and friends, you have the right to eat copious amounts of gloriously fattening foods and everyone’s spirits are on high. I hope you all have wonderful days planned with your loved ones. We will be enjoying a pig on the spit with our family and friends and I can’t wait!
Today we have the awesomely talented and super successful

I can feel the scorching summer weather beginning to fade away, replaced by the crisp autumn breeze that stirs my curtains and holds with it the promise of winter. I adore winter in Dimbulah. We actually get to wear our jumpers for a whole two months, if we are lucky!

Being a mother to 4 children and also having a part time job, how do you find time for writing?
For a long time I didn't, and then I just realized that like anything-if you don't do it, you never get any good at it. So I just made time. I write in ten minute snatches if I have to, but it's getting a bit easier now most of the kids are older.

Fiona Palmer
