Profile Information

Orford, Tasmania
About Me:
I live in a small country town on the east coast of Tasmania. I teach 11 and 12 year olds ( and I enjoy my job. I love my family and friends, my vast menagerie of pets, reading novels, going to live shows, losing weight, eating chocolate, the satisfaction of having exercised, winning anything, hearing a good joke, researching history, shopping mindlessly, summer holidays, singing loudly, Tasmanian sunshine, bush-walking, Bailey's Irish Cream... This list could go on for a lot longer! Is it any wonder I don’t have enough time for reading?
I Am A:
Books And Authors I Like:
How much space do I have?
Rett MacPherson, Deborah Crombie, Stephen Booth, Julia Spencer-Flemming, Beverley Connor, Laura Lippman, Peter Robinson, Stephen White, Nicci French, Jan Burke, Mark Billingham, Barbara Seranella, Arnaldur Indridason, Chris Grabenstein, Karin Slaughter, Tess Gerritsen, Garry Disher, Jane Haddam, Liz Evans, Donna Moore, Kate Kingsbury, Kat Richardson, Nevada Barr, Peter Temple, Louise Penny, Aline Templeton...
Movies And TV Shows I Like:

I think you're all going to have to wait until I retire before I start blogging with any degree of seriousness. This place is good fun and I'm already spending too much time sitting on my bum in front of the computer. The sun is shining and the vegie patch needs weeding.

Hi Fran - I am glad your class are enjoying hearing about a village way on the other side of the world. I've tried to put some interesting things in today's post for them.

Hi Fran
Nice to meet you. Except for the pets (and I hope it's not a deal breaker), I love all the same things you do. And I once had dogs before I raised kids.

Hi Fran,

Thanks for the invite. I just finished The Blood Ballad by Rett MacPherson and I loved it. A review is posted on Also sent the review to booksnbytes but David is behind in posting.

If you get a chance to read Christopher Valen's White Tombs it is great - his first book and a good one.

Take care,

HappyRuby (Mama Pat)

Hey World Traveller! I was thinking about you yesterday. Picked up a book (not one I liked but that is beside the point) that is largely set in India. Hope you are having a wonderful time!

It would if it were at a different time - we could not leave here till Friday and would have to be home on Sunday. Not long enough to be worth it. Home early on Sunday at that. Sigh. Kids take up so much time.
