Our new book has arrived!!

A group of us Genies Down Under podcast listeners decided to publish our convict stories in a book
which was launched a couple of days ago on the December podcast.
"Cheers!" she says, holding up an imaginary glass of champagne to our tireless leader, Maria Northcote, who steered us through the painless process, and to all the other authors: Andrew Black, Ros Escott, Dot Elder, Jennifer Goodwin, and Gill McMillan.
My story is about Esther Salamon (or Esther Spencer), who I wrote about in a previous post.

  8. Thanks, Sharon. I loved how in the first Aussie season of "Who Do You Think You Are" Jack Thompson called his convict ancestors Australian Royalty. And a quote in a book I read recently said that Australia was built by some wonderful people, all hand picked by the best judges in England.
