A BOOK launch took place on Saturday at the Berry School of Arts hosted by the local CWA branch.

In Australia she has worked for gardening magazines and for the last five years as a writer with the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
Australian Farming Families is her second book, her first Love in the Outback.
