The Lost Swimmer - Rebecca Wilding, an archeology professor, traces the past for a living. But suddenly, truth and certainty is turning against her. Rebecca is accused of serious fraud, and worse, she suspects – she knows – that her husband, Stephen, is having an affair. The Lost Swimmer is an extraordinary novel that beautifully weaves together mood, atmosphere and sheer emotional power – this is literary suspense at its very best.
Six Degrees - Six Degrees uses the allure, the action or the absence of physical connection to explore these everyday character’s flaws, quirks and strengths. For the first time, critically-acclaimed author Honey Brown has made sexual attraction the intriguing hero of each story.
Active and a keen bushwalker, a life-changing blow came for Honey in her late-twenties when she was involved in a farm accident. The resulting spinal injury left her confined to a wheelchair. Honey turned to writing as a way back from the trauma and the depression that followed.
Join Ann Turner and Honey Brown for a discussion about crime writing and much more!
We have too much stuff, physically and emotionally. But where do we begin to sort it out and stop it coming back? How can we live with less and enjoy life more?
The first half of our lives is on automatic – school, university, marriage, kids – then what? If you want the second half of your life to be the best half, it’s time to switch to manual. Be inspired to become the person you’ve always wanted to be.
