Vigil and Other Stories
I have just recieved the proofs for my latest book, Vigil, a collection of 15 short stories to be published by Ginninderra Press later this year. Ginninderra Press is an award-winning independent publisher owned by Stephen Matthews. Founded in Canberra, it is now located in Port Adelaide, South Australia. I’m delighted to be associated with Stephen and the Press.
The name derives from Ginninderra Indigenous land within what is now the ACT. It is said to mean ‘throwing out little rays of light’.
The stories in Vigil range in time from contemporary Australia to Britain in the sixties, and in location, from Morocco’s Atlas Mountains to Bondi Beach. Some of the tales are sad, some are funny, some are both, all are full of a love for life. I hope they too throw out rays of light.
