Book Title

This book is the account of a Democrat insider; one who was both a woman and a Queensland President. Its focus on Queensland makes very interesting reading for those of us who shared the experiences. The author, as did I, took part in the movement to abolish the gerrymander in Queensland. They were memorable times which galvanised a progressive collaboration.

"From the historical vantage point of thirty-six years later with our memories less acute and our friendships revived or having stood the test of time, this book serves the important role of recording the progress of Australia’s significant third party in our political process".
- Cheryl Kernot

Book Title
Non-Fiction

Lively tales from Papua New Guinea—the land almost lost in time is an account of
Papua New Guinea by an Australian who lived there from 1967 until 1975. It is a
first-hand account of a young woman’s discovery and adventure in PNG but also
describes the people, the places and the highlights of an emerging nation and aspects
of its history both modern and ancient.

Book Title

For me, the world of ‘nature and sense and sound’ is a tremendous source of joy.

The wind, the rain, the birds, the sky, the trees.. speak to me of meaning and beau-ty.

To see a tree destroyed or animals harmed is painful. What we are presently doing to the world of nature is very sad. Perhaps we will realise in time and try to reverse some of the damage.

Meanwhile, let us celebrate the infinite variety and attractiveness of the world and find food for our souls.
I wish you joy in reading these poems.

Book Title

Starting this book was difficult. I wrote one beginning, then another and another. I knew I wanted to write about the social impact of differences between masculine and feminine attributes but the subject was complex and issues went off in all directions like fleas from a matchbox.

I discarded one after another inadequate attempt before I had the good fortune to find a book called The Chalice and the Blade by Riane Eisler¹.

I unashamedly borrowed her approach while adapting some of the content to my own purposes. Gradually my own story emerged.
