I live in Toowoomba, which lies on the crest of the Great Dividing Range in South East Queensland.
Originally from South Africa, my husband and I, along with our two children, Nikita and Jarod, immigrated to Australia in November 2008 – and wow, what an adventure it has been.
From never having flown in an aeroplane to 3 flights within a week – one of those international – and traipsing half-way across the world to begin our new life, it was overwhelming to say the least.
We have integrated well into Australian Society and will always be thankful to our adopted country for giving us a second chance at life with “no worries” (well, not exactly no worries, but you know what I mean) and, on the 25th October 2013 took a very important step in our journey, by becoming Australian Citizens.
I work full-time for the Queensland Government but am an avid reader – thanks to my Mom who introduced me to the world of books at the tender age of 2 – and during breaks at work, you will almost always find me sitting under the trees with a book.
I joined Goodreads in about April 2012 after a work colleague recommended it and started this Blog for my book reviews which also get posted to Goodreads, Amazon and The Reading Room – I thought it would not only be great to “get myself out there” as a Book Blogger but also to promote the untold number of Australian Authors in our midst.
