Despite all except one of us living in the same city (Perth, Western Australia), it’s a rare treat these days for the writing/critiquing group I belong to, Egoboo WA, to get together – all of us – in person. Apart from Laura E. Goodin, who lives on the other side of Australia, and Sarah Lee Parker, the remaining five of us, Carol Ryles, Helen Venn, Satima Flavell, Keira McKenzie and I managed to meet for lunch and a long chat on a gorgeous mild late winter’s day, at Carol’s house.
We were greeted exuberantly by Annie, the black poodle (a total sweetie), and tucked into Carol’s luscious roasted pumpkin and sweet potato soup and other goodies, topped off by a dessert for true fantasy lovers, the exotic Cthulhu Pie! One word: ‘Yummy’.
We originally planned to watch a new documentary (see below), but it was too much fun catching up on each other’s doings and writings, and to hear about the progress of our various novels, which cover a broad spectrum of the fantasy genre.
Thanks for a lovely day, ladies. Hope we can do it again soon! All the best to all our novels and other writing/creative pursuits.

If you’re interested in the concept of ET visitation to Earth, you can watch a trailer for the documentary Sirius here. It follows the work of Dr Steven Greer, is the biggest crowdfunded doco to date (as some of you will already know, I have an interest in this subject and took part in the crowdfunding – it was a great experience to watch the development of this film). It is based on this premise:
“The Earth has been visited by advanced Inter-Stellar Civilizations that can travel through other dimensions faster than the speed of light. They use energy propulsion systems that can bring us to a new era. Humans have also developed these systems but those in power have suppressed them in order to keep us at the mercy of fossil fuels. It is time for you to know…and this documentary will let you in.”
