My parents are Italian immigrants, whose families have been in Western Australia since the early 1920s. I am the third of five children, with two older sisters and two younger brothers. I spent my entire working life in WA, doing secretarial and receptionist work. I was good at sports and loved writing, but never had the opportunity to do anything about it. My parents had a farm which I grew up on. It was about ten years ago, as I never married nor had children, that I sold up everything to change the direction of my life. I wrote a travel diary, sent emails and recorded my travel exploits. I also posted photos and small paragraphs to describe the plot, on Facebook.
It was during a trip through Scotland on a wet, rainy day on a bus tour through the Highlands, where I got the inspiration for the book.
Special characters with some superpowers are the basis of this story. Set in an imaginary world, their powers get in the way of them being friends and working together until they are taught a lesson in The Garden of Eden. There is an ongoing rivalry between certain characters and two of them are taught a tough lesson. Would they understand that working together was the only way to succeed? Would their idea finally be successful and be of benefit to others too?
