  • Poseidon’s Academy

    Getting sucked into a whirlpool, sleeping in monster-infested woods, and battling psycho sea-nymphs was not how Hailey planned to spend her first year of high school. But when you’re the only Zeus in the world, life tends to get a bit complicated.

    The Great Battle saw the world changed forever when humans killed the gods and absorbed their powers. One power was coveted above all others: Zeus’s.

    Thirteen-year-old Hailey Woods is the first Zeus in over a century. Unlike everyone else, she hates her powers because of an ancient prophecy that claims a Zeus will have to save the world someday. Hailey doesn’t want to save the world. She wants to be a normal teenager.

    Poseidon’s Academy, an underwater palace where her powers don’t work, was meant to give her that opportunity. But when she arrives, she discovers the sea-nymphs living there are plotting to resurrect the gods, and Hailey must find a way to stop them before they can enact the prophecy. 

    So much for normal!

  • PUD The Wannabe Cat

    PUD was our cat and he disappeared for 2 weeks several years ago. After using posters around the community and posting on social media, we gave up and thought he was gone until one night, around midnight, we were woken again by his familiar cry.

    The book covers his adventures and use of his nine lives to survive and will be published by Aurora House Publishing as were the first two of my books. They are very easy to work with and are an Australian company.

    The talented Donika Mishineva produced the cover; illustrations were drawn by Boomer artist and advocate Keith Blake and yes it was written by me for parents/grandparents to read to children or 4-9 year olds to read for themselves.

    I like the challenge of writing different genres and have thoroughly enjoyed the experience in bringing Pud back to life.

  • Rainbow People

    We live in a world of individual differences. Yet when you take a closer look at anyone at all, you find that, essentially, we are all the same. This book tells you why that is.

    The author shares with you the informative and entertaining stories of her life work journey with disabled people. She relates how her path was ‘intercepted’ by a special group of individuals early in her career and how that experience led to a change in her direction.

    Her messages will not only uplift and inspire you as a support worker or carer, you will feel a sense of pride to take on those roles. The disabled Barbara met along her path will ‘show and tell’ you how to focus on their abilities – often without saying a word. Yet with their collective ‘voice’, they can teach you more about yourself as well.

    For those of you who feel ignorant of what it means to be Intellectually Disable, then you will be pleasantly surprised when you meet many of them in this thought provoking and joyful book. Each individual invites you to join them through their own stories with a promise to gladden your heart and put a smile on your face.

  • Red Dust Dreams

    This is a book about the largest part of Australia. It provides written testimony to the way the people out there live, focussing on the domestic front.
    Much of the content of most other books, documentaries, TV programmes and movies dealing with outback Australia focusses more on the outdoor side of life, only touching on the domestic side.

    There is also a lot of history that is in danger of being lost forever. Some of this has been captured in this book.
    The world needs this book.

    UNIQUE ANGLES

    In my book I have tried to:

    •    Focus on the domestic side of life;
    •    Show that despite huge distances, the people out there can still socialise;
    •    Explain the way many different aspects are coped with in such isolation;
    •    Also describe the feelings of those people who have made the mammoth move from life in urban Australia out to the outback;

    READER BENEFITS

    •    The reader will learn about how those people live;
    •    Through the images in each chapter, the reader will also see how spectacular the outback really is;
    •    Children will learn the reality of where meat, milk, vegetables and fruit come from;
    •    Readers will learn how people can survive without the convenience of shops;
    •    Readers will gain a bit of an idea of just how mammoth some of these stations are;

    COMPETING WORKS

    Many of the books currently on the market appear to focus on only one or two stations or only one state. None seems to have focussed on the domestic side of life.

    Women of the Outback by Sue Williams (Penguin Group, 2008). Looks at the lives of 14 different women of the land, but from what I can ascertain none of the ‘nitty gritty’ has been covered;
    Women of the Land by Liz Harfull (Allen & Unwin, 2012). Looks at the lives of a further eight different women, but again not a lot of that ‘nitty gritty’ is included;
    Outback Stations by Evan McHugh (Penguin, 2012). This book appears to cover much of the history leading up to and including detail about life on the stations. While it does delve into some of the positives and negatives facing the women particularly, there is not a lot of detail and again it does not go into a lot of domestic detail.

  • Self Propelled – Moving Forward in Life

    Life is full of twists and turns, roadblocks and detours, but there are no shortcuts in this life. With the help of our friends and family and a few signs left by our mentors before us, we learn to find our way.

    My life so far has been one hell of a journey and I was able to cope, survive, and ultimately conquer my fears, using the skills I acquired as a government consultant and community counsellor.

    After writing my life’s story, A Bonza Life: The Story of a Baby Boomer, the positive reception I received impelled me to share the steps I have presented to thousands of baby boomers over the last twenty years to help them prepare for a meaningful future.

    In this book, I outline a map for boomers to prepare mentally and financially for an extended career, re-entry into the workforce, and a retirement that is longer than expected and well-overdue.

  • Senlac

    Senlac is an anti-war love story.

    Classical composer Jack Stalwart is called up to go to war. The night before he leaves, in a vivid dream of the Norman invasion of England, Jack’s dilemma of being torn between his family and his country is mirrored by the Saxon hero King Harold as both are forced to make a stand in the struggle for peace.

    Sometimes quirky and funny, sometimes caustic and heartbreakingly sad. Senlac looks at tomorrow through a prism of the past, and shines a spotlight on the pathway for today.

  • Stop Smoking Start Vaping – The Healthy Truth About Vaping

    “This book is a must for any smoker who wants to know if vaping can help them quit (I wish I’d known about it earlier)”
    Senator Hollie Hughes. Chair of the Australian Senate Select Committee on Tobacco Harm Reduction

    If you are a smoker who can’t quit, this book could literally save your life. Vaping nicotine is the world’s most popular and most effective quitting aid. However, it is controversial and poorly understood.

    Dr Mendelsohn outlines the scientific evidence in simple terms so you can make an informed decision about whether it could work for you.

    Is it really safer than smoking? Does vaping cause ‘popcorn lung’? Does nicotine cause cancer? Is vaping cheaper than smoking?

    The book guides you through the maze of getting started. What vaping device should you buy? How much nicotine do you need? How can Australians get a nicotine prescription? How do you actually vape and when should you stop?

    Part three examines the controversies around vaping and why it is opposed by many health authorities. Is it really a serious threat to young people? Is it another ploy by the tobacco industry to get more people smoking? How should vaping be regulated to get the best public health outcomes?

    There is still more to learn about vaping, but one thing is for certain. If you are a smoker who can’t quit, switching to vaping could be the best thing you will ever do for your health and your wallet.

    “If you are a smoker, and especially a smoker who hasn’t tried vaping, read this book, and try it now”
    Emeritus Professor John Britton. Former Chair, Tobacco Advisory Group, Royal College of Physicians (UK)

    Dr Colin Mendelsohn is one of Australia’s leading experts on smoking cessation. He was the Founding Chairman of the Australian Tobacco Harm Reduction Association (ATHRA) and is a member of the committee that develops the Royal Australian College of General Practitioners’ national smoking cessation guidelines. He was a Conjoint Associate Professor in the School of Public Health and Community Medicine at the University of New South Wales, Sydney and is actively involved in research, teaching and writing about smoking and vaping.

     

    REVIEWS:

    ‘This book written by Dr Mendelsohn is a must-read for all smokers who want to quit. Easy to read and based on scientific information, the book spans the full 360 degrees of the world of vaping. Consumers, pol- icymakers, health professionals will find it insightful. Many will finally understand the value of switching to e-cigarettes as a far less harmful alternative to smoking tobacco.’

    Professor Riccardo Polosa
    Professor of Internal Medicine and Respiratory Physician, University of Cata- nia, Italy; Founder of the Center of Excellence for the Acceleration of Harm Reduction (CoEHAR), University of Catania, Italy

    ‘This book is a valuable resource for smokers, doctors and regulators. Smokers will get clear information on the benefits of switching to vap- ing and some excellent practical guidance on how to do it; doctors will learn about an important topic that is not covered in their education; and politicians and regulators will obtain some clarity about the differ- ence between facts and ideologically motivated misinformation that has been dominating this field. The book has great potential to improve both individual and public health.’

    Professor Peter Hajek
    Professor of Clinical Psychology and Director of the Health and Lifestyle Research Unit at the Wolfson Institute of Preventive Medicine, Queen Mary University of London

This book is for smokers, their families and doctors wanting to help smokers quit, and will save many lives.’
