Ruth Faulkner Christmas Writing Exhibition


Street art Xmas Graffiti Christmas Tree ~ by Muscovsdite artist



It is the season to be busy! I admit to loving Christmas. The Ruth Falkner Library, in Belmont, is currently exhibiting Christmas themed writing and poetry from the Belmont Writers Group. If you are in the area, please stop in and have a read. Among them are funny poems (Carolyn Sambridge), acrostic poems (Matthew Banner), two wonderful short memoirs about Christmas during and after WWII, and my own ‘Pantoum of The Birth of Jesus Christ’. It was my first attempt at writing an irregular Pantoum. I am very pleased with how it turned out. The exhibition runs until January.

“Lay Brothers (Sophie Rathenau’s Vienna Mysteries Book 2)” by David Neilson.


My friend David Neilson has published another historical mystery novel. If you are looking for an inexpensive Kindle gift, Lay Brothers is an excellent choice. Well written and historically accurate, with a strong female sleuth, I thoroughly recommend Lay Brothers!

“Munich, 1772
Sophie Rathenau hopes she’s escaped the Austrian Chancellor, even if the price is grappling with Bavarian drunks. But when barmaid friend Leni asks her to trace a missing priest, it’s the wrath of the Jesuit Order Sophie has to fear, not to mention a posse of turncoat officials and Balkan maniacs.”

With the current lack of government support for literary funding WA Poets Inc – Perth Poetry Festival is investigating alternate sources of funding for the 2017 Perth Poetry Festival.

Thanks again to everyone who has purchased my recently indie-published poetry from Smashwords!!! If you would like to purchase my poetry or download my free short stories, you can do so here.
