I have three trilogy series planned encompassing all the aspects of what I feel Australia represents to people all over the world. Its coast and beaches, its outback and its small country towns. All locales could not be more different. As a reader, I love reading about other places in the world so I hope readers from elsewhere will enjoy reading about my country.
Just to give you a sample, my loosely labelled "coast" trilogy will be set in three different coastal areas. One will be on the Gold Coast in Queensland, world renowned for being part of the magnificent Great Barrier Reef that runs along its whole length for thousands of kilometres, is visible from space and is a world heritage national park.
And the others will be set in a small town cafe along the peaceful south coast of New South Wales and in the popular village of Port Fairy on the Victorian south coast that stretches from Geelong west of Melbourne to the South Australian border. It is situated on the Great Ocean Road that runs for about 243 kilometres or 150 miles from Torquay to Warrnambool. It was built by returned soldiers from World War 1 between 1919 and 1932.
And for a taste of the others, my "outback" series will cover the vastly different flat red soil plains of cattle and sheep stations in Western Australia, South Australia and Queensland. And my "village" or small town series will be based on the inland town of Beechworth in north eastern Victoria, an early gold mining area, full of history and beautiful old buildings. Also renowned for its famous bakery.
