Ten years since the book launch at the beach

It’s just over ten years, September 2003, since I launched my book Jacaranda Avenue at the Williamstown Swimming and Life Saving Club.

A celebratory dip with Brian Nankervis, my sister Louise, and local swimmer (and drummer) Ash Davies.

While the book – a collection of 30 family and suburban stories illustrated by my daughter Hannah –  didn’t exactly set the publishing world on fire, we had a very enjoyable afternoon in the clubrooms, on the beach and in the water. I’ve still got a few  copies left. Let me know if you’d like one.
