Now and again, Ron and I visit the Blue Mountains, which are just a few hours drive from where we live in suburban Sydney. The scenery is so much different from that of home, and very spectacular, especially from the mountain lookouts. Here are a couple of photos, just to give you an idea.

New Release: ‘Longbourn Revisited’

23 Aug

Margaret's Classic Posts

Earlier this year, fellow writer and friend, Sarah Johnson, suggested that I might like to try something different: Jane Austen fan fiction. Being a long-time lover of the immortal classic, ‘Pride and Prejudice’, I approached the project with mixed emotions.  Excitement and insecurity about my ability to anyways approach doing justice to this iconic work figured high amongst them. At any rate, this is the result: a novelette entitled ‘Longbourn Revisited’, which was published just a few hours ago.

Kudos to Sarah Johnson, of Peculiar Designs, for creating its cover.14060354_1776488029299331_1192375809_o (1)

Despite the daytime temperature being less than summery, the birds are still to be found cleaning themselves in whatever receptacles of water that they can spot.

“Whatever’s the matter, Charlotte? You seem as though you have the weight of the world on your shoulders. Not still pining over Sam, I hope…”

“No, Mum. It was never serious – not really, anyway. It was fun while it lasted,” I added, smiling a little as thoughts of the good times came flooding back.

“Well, I’m pleased to hear you say that. I remember my first boyfriend – Derek was his name. I thought that there’d be no tomorrow, after he dumped me for a new girl on the block. How wrong I was…”

My smile widened. How nice it was that Mum and I were so close, so candid about almost everything.

Thus begins my new release, ‘Charlotte’s Lance and the Round Fable’ –…

It’s Wattle time, here in Sydney, Australia.

In truth, there are species of Wattle out where I live almost every month of the year, but right now, it’s more than normally plentiful.

Here’s a photo of one that grows near the Georges River.2013_0902imagefacebook0113
