I’m very proud to be the winner of the 2014 Finch Memoir Prize. Announced at the Sydney Writers Festival, I have been gripping on to my brand new book very tight as I give speeches and interviews, (not to mention drink champagne!) Some very special people attended the launch including Finch staff, family, friends, shortlisted applicants, Bush Heritage staff and the head of the ratcatchers. Tomorrow I’m on a panel with three others authors discussing the topic of ‘Living Simply’. My feet are hardly touching the ground..
