Guess what? My wonderful Publisher has asked for the sequel to my first novel.
It will be named From lantana to Lotuses or From Lotuses to Lantana, depending on what Fiona Gatt, my co-writer in this event decides.
This story creates some new characters, different adventures and more pathos, love, drama than the "Life and Loves of Tiger Williams."
The new "lad on the block is Richard Little" Richard meets up with an old droving mate Steve Williams (Tiger), and joins the staff on Rosemore.
On Rosemore the new characters mingle and mix with the Rosemore 'family', sharing happiness, sadness and tragedy.
This sequel takes us to the 1960's in the Central West of Queensland, when the modern world was slowly taking over the Outback.
The attitudes of those of the Large Brown Country is depicted, from the memory of being there at the time, attitudes that still tried to hold onto the old ethics of the great country.
You can guarantee it will be 'required reading' for those that were clever enough to get the first book.
I loved writing it, I hope you will love reading it.
