Welcome to Western Australia – a Mother’s Day story
Tom Cruise has done some pretty dumb things in my opinion. Dumping Nicole Kidman. What the hell was that? The whole Scientology thing, but I mustn’t mention religion. Reacher is completely unforgivable. Yet I can’t help loving the little guy. Top Gun’s the best. The Mission Impossible movies are close behind – except for one […]

It’s called Welcome to Western Australia and it’s based on my mother-in-law’s reminiscences about life in the Graylands migrant hostel in the early 1960s.

Right here https://www.amandamlee.net/avery-shaw.html. would be a great place to […]
Long Live Happy Ever After
Hi, I’m TJ Beach and this is my blog. I thought I’d get things started by giving something away – a free short story. We writers work alone in dark caves surrounded by part-filled coffee cups and scraps of paper but we gather for comfort and support in writers groups. Mine is the Vic Park […]
Nora Roberts, Wilbur Smith and Bernard Cornwell have a lot
I will read pretty much anything any of those three authors have ever written, but that’s not what I’m talking about here.
