Verandah launch

I am now the proud owner of my very own copy of Verandah 24 containing my story, "morning stranger", which won the editors' choice award! Reading part of my story to the assembled crowd at the launch was quite nerve-racking but gee, it was wonderful when it was over. I'd had all day at various other Melbourne Writers' Festival events in which to work up some fabulous nervousness! The launch of Verandah was a MWF free event. Thank you to everyone who came to lend their support - I sure needed it! :)

Here is a picture of me being terrified:

That's great Deb. If you need a good manuscript agent to get this published I know a great one who is a close and very dear friend!
