Christmas is Coming - Katherine Scholes


Katherine was born in Tanzania, East Africa, the daughter of a missionary doctor and an artist. (What a scintillating love story that envokes in the mind!) Thanks to my teenage reading diet of Wilbur Smith and other African based books (which belonged to my father), just the fact Katherine and Tanzania exist in the same sentence was enough for me to say, I need to know more about this amazing lady! 

Christmas is Coming - Kerry Greenwood


Today I host an extremely talented and amazing woman, someone whom I am immensely proud and priviledged to have on my blog. She is none other than the creator of the books which the ABC TV's Phryne Fisher series is based upon (and thus I am almost gabbling ...blush).

The sheer force of nature that is Kerry Greenwood was born in the Melbourne suburb of Footscray. She has a degree in English and Law from Melbourne University and was admitted to the legal profession on the 1st of April 1982, a day which she finds both soothing and significant.
