Our local bookshop here in Sydney is Potts Point bookshop, it’s a fantastic!  I am not just saying that because my book is in the window either. It really has a fab selection of  beautiful books. Anna and her team make all those browsers welcome. It’s the Kings Cross Festival this week, from 21st to 25th of November. I will be in the bookshop on Thursday night 22nd from 6.30pm with my new book My Greek Island Home so please come and say hello. I can sign a copy for you too.

Christine Manfield’s delicious food inspired by Lyndey Milan and Claire Lloyds books! I can’t wait to get back to Universal for another meal.

I am now in sunny Sydney and the publicity for new book, My Greek Island Home has begun. Today first thing is a pre recorded interview with Julie McCrossin for Qantas in flight radio. This interview will be aired in December across all national and international flights, exciting! Then to the airport for a flight to Brisbane where I will be in conversation with Phil Brown at 6pm tonight at the Avid Reader book shop in West End. I will also be signing books. If your in the area drop by. At 9pm the last stop of the day is at 612 ABC radio for a live interview with Rebecca Livingston. The evening will be crowned by relaxing with my friend Rob for a good catch up and a glass of something cold! Thanks everyone for the enthusiasm you’ve shown in my new book, My Greek Island Home. October in Greece means one of my favourite fruits, pomegranate. I leave you with an explosion of pomegranates in the palm of a hand.


I was sorting through some files and came across this beautifully delicate image. I took this in Sydney in the summer.
The flower itself came from Grandiflora, my favourite Sydney florist.
