A book by our Possummagic

A dash of fact, a cup full of fiction and a teaspoon of fantasy. This combined creates a degustation of words, which makes my book of short stories and poetry a tasty choice.

This book started with a letter to my sister for her fortieth birthday which coincided with our 40 year anniversary of our arrival in Australia.

It was the start of my love of writing. This is my first book but not my last.

Just released on Amazon!

A book by our Harry Smith

In God's Pen author Harry C. Smith shares his hope for enlightenment and compassion through his powerful testament that exudes with personal conviction regarding alcohol and cigarette addition and his evocative poems that tell of struggle and hope from pain and distress:

To experience this avant-garde work can purchase "God's Pen" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, Books A Million or Barnes and Noble.
