‘War is not brave, but men can be brave in war & in life.’ ~ ANZAC DAY ~ Time for Reflection

Anzac Day at Dawn Service, 'Lest We ForgetSo many young people are joining the Anzac Services at dawn.

War is always frightening and the last resort.

My father was a prisoner of war. I grew up when so many young men were conscripted for the Vietnam War. The world is always at war and our young people serve and sacrifice.

As a mother, daughter, author, I search to understand true leadership and male courage.

It was a personal revelation when I wrote:-

‘War is not brave, but men can be brave in war and in life.’

(From ‘The Cave’ page 141)

I'm a writer committed to kids in particular. Adults are good too. Want to bring hope through story to my readers. Awarded an Order of Australia, Lady Cutler Award and a Lifetime International Award for Literacy for my body of work, spreading literacy is really important. I'm head of SCBWI Australia East & New Zealand, patron of Monkey Baa Theatre, Ambassador for the Premier's Reading Challenge, Writer Ambassador for Room to Read ... among other roles. I also love heritage and adapting to enhance the lives of people today, which is why I restored The Hughenden Hotel 1870s and The Residences Centennial Park - the only homes in the parklands which are open now for accommodation, events and lots of nature.
