THE GREAT ESCAPE FROM WOODLANDS NURSING HOME

The%20Great%20Escape%20cover_edited.jpg

A reclusive spinster and a gregarious widower, two equally reluctant inmates of an aged care home, form an unlikely friendship and discover that you're never too old to laugh. Or love.

THE LAST VOYAGE OF MRS HENRY PARKER

The Last Voyage 2020 cover.jpg

The Last Voyage of Mrs Henry Parker is a love letter to the memories we make over the course of a lifetime, and how the heart remembers when the mind has long forgotten.

THE SINGLE LADIES OF JACARANDA RETIREMENT VILLAGE

TSLOJRVcover.jpg

A chance encounter with a long lost school friend sets lonely widow Peggy Smart on a journey of self-discovery and demonstrates that it's never too late to grow old disgracefully.
