A question I’m often asked is, ‘Why are there always colours in your book titles?’
It’s a question with many answers, but the main one for me is the colours of the land. This photo is a prime example – brilliant white sheep against dark, rich green grass and a fluorescent canola crop in the background. It’s a beautiful view.
The colours of Australia mean so many different things to me. I love the red of the Northern Territory — a place I spent a lot of time as a kid — the purple of the mid-north of SA and the green of Esperance, where I live now.
All these places have their own special beauty and, as I keep trying to explain to the boss, it has nothing to do with productivity (farm wise). It’s the splendour of the land that we are lucky to live in.
Hence the colours in my titles!
