Ashes is still alive

This 1970 book is still generating some interest and requests to republish have been many. At this time of my life I am grateful for all that has gone and I know what I have ever written will ever be a fire in my heart but folk interested can either contact me or try on line for copies either used or available in libraries.


A return

I am again today reminded of ALL the rich writing resources I have. This site is about Beyond the ASHES which is my first published novel, In the season of my 2022 Memoir published and all the things happening. I was reminded I pay now a small monthly fee for this blog site. I desire to keep it just for this Australian story of 1970. Should I keep it ‘Live’ here? I hope to rekindle love for the people and for our country. Value any comments. My friends who once were very helpful have either ‘gone home’ or do not use technology. Any visitor here is welcome. I will revamp and add to info here if it is wanted by someone. Cherers1
