TOUR OF FAR North Queensland

TOUR OF FAR NORTH QUEENSLAND!

Queensland!

Leaving tomorrow for my grand adventure traveling though far North Queensland running Healing Power of Story workshops for the fabulous Queensland Writers Centre.

Telling our Stories to the WORLD! I am passionate about Queensland writers and Queensland stories and looking forward to meeting many new writers in the far flung reaches of our enormous and beautiful state.

My father’s family were early settlers in Innisfail and I spent many happy days running wild on the family cane farm and exploring the glorious tropical beaches and freezing cold waterfalls. I love it up there. I’ve travelled far and wide trying to find beauty that equals it. Happy to report – I never have.
