Profile Information

Darwin, Northern Territory, Australia
About Me:
I have been an avid reader since a very early age. The first books that I collected were the Famous Five mystery series by Enid Blyton

I love most genre's except westerns and horror. If murder can be incorporated into whatever genre I am reading so much the better.

So basically I will read murder mysteries that have romance, comedy, travel, paranormal and science fiction. Some would say I am not a mystery purist as I don't exclusively read mysteries - and I would have to agree.

I love books that make me think, make me cry and make me laugh. If I can get all of them in one book - so much the better.

I am inclined to the cosier end of the mystery genre - but will gird my loins and read something meatier if given a good reason.
Books And Authors I Like:
Work in progress:

Brian Kavenagh, Enid Blyton, Val McDermid, J K Rowlings, Minette Walters, Stephen Booth, Ann Cleaves,

There are more - but these fill in the space nicely for now

Genre I like - well mystery DUH!!! but I also enjoy any genre except westerns and horror (mind you I like the softer paranormal stuff with a bit of humour and romance thrown in). I do tend to go to the softer end of murder mystery, more comfortable with the tea and cats than blood and guts. But having said that there are quite a few 'blood and guts' authors that I read as they are great writers.
Movies And TV Shows I Like:
Movies: The Queen, All the Harry Potter movies, Ice Age (the first one)

Shows: Frost, Inspector Rex, Lost

Sally, that's great news! Looking forward to meeting up. The MWF this year is in Federation Square: not sure if that's a good move or not. Either way it's nearer the chocolate shops!

Hi Sally- our mutual friend Emily Bronstein says that we have interests in common, such as historical mysteries that involve the age of sail. By the way, I love Australia. Visited there during the 80s while stationed onboard a US Navy destroyer.

Greetings from New Orleans, across the world, to the Land Down Under. Glad to have readers all over the world. My book, The Beatitudes, is a paranormal thriller set in New Orleans. It will be out in the fall and I am donating all royalties directly to the New Orleans Public Library Foundation. Libraries support the infrastructure of a great city, so I have started The Beatitudes Network to promote awareness of the importance of public libraries in NOLA.
The blogsite describes the Network, has excerpts from The Beatitudes, recipes, and more. Merci mille fois. Lyn Lejeune.
Writers, please pass the word…’s for a good cause….don’t let the libraries of New Orleans or the US go the way of The Great Library of Alexandria. P.S. just posted an excerpt on my Crimespace page.

Hey sally, wow, you have all three? That's what I like to hear. Hope there's not too much blood and guts for you, but rest assured there is a rather nice kitty cat in Cherry Pie.

Hi Sally, glad your computer finally cooperated. Have fun and I'm sure we'll run into each other around here.

Hi Sally.
Good to 'see' you here. Don't know why others have problems with their computers and this site. No worries here.
