Updates from Fiji.

We have a few days left to enjoy this tropical paradise.  It is work for one of us, and writing for the other.  But the good news, there are no dishes, no animals to clean up after and no meals to cook.

Our time in the Yasawa Islands was unkind weather wise.  Torrential rain and temperatures lower than we have ever experienced here before.  My favourite place to write had one submerged boat, lost their beach and caused me much anxiety on the float plane trip back to the mainland.

The Quilt, Unravelled hit #1 in World Literature, Australian and Oceanian this week, and the new manuscript is progressing nicely.

I cant wait to share a part of this story with you.  The new book is another rocky life story, full of life’s trials and tribulations and some colourful characters.

Enjoy a few images of our time in Fiji.  The resort in the Yasawa’s normally has a deep sweep of white sand beach.  The boat photograph is taken just after boarding our small float plane.  This is not my favourite thing to do and always makes me question my failing agility.

Have a great day and please visit my Facebook page.  I love to share news about books, writing and life down under.

The best image of a sunset I have captured this trip. Normally a vivid display, winter has robbed the sky of its glory. The cover of The Quilt, Unravelled is a sunset image taken by our son, in Fiji.
