Of Boys and Boats, Young Adult novel
After submitting this story to a number of publishers without success, Ford Street Publishing in Melbourne recognised a good story when they saw one and offered me a contract to publish. What followed was over 12 months of extensive editing and rewriting under the guidance of two fabulous editors – Abbie and Robyn, and the book was released to the world in September 2020.
This story is based on many of my childhood experiences when growing up in Geelong in the 1950s, however, I must point out that I never pissed on a girl’s leg or fired a slingshot loaded with a dog turd! read more>
