I just love coming home to Australia. Mornings like this: nice walk, swim, coffee and book signing with friends.

Last Friday evening, with a touch of trepidation and a small knot of nerves, I went to the Links restaurant on the stunning Wollongong beachfront, to meet up with my first Aussie bookclub readers of Spirit of Lost Angels. The wine and champagne surely helped, but I needn't have worried a bit, the girls were all gorgeous and gave me some insightful feedback into my novel. As the evening wore on, I felt less on the chopping block, and more part of their friendly group, especially during the hilarious Secret Santa present swap. A big thank you to Sharyn, the bookclub's 'co-ordinator extraordinaire', and to my long-time school and nursing friend, Deb Holdsworth, for organizing such a wonderful evening.
