Memoirs Of A Reluctant Traveller
Sudesh Mishra was born in Suva, Fiji, and took his doctorate from the Flinders University of South Australia in 1989. He received the Harri Jones Memorial Prize (1988) for his published verse, including his first collection Rahu (1987). He has since published a second volume, Tandava (1992), a passionate indictment of the 1987 coup in Fiji. He has also edited Trapped: A Collection of Writing from Fiji (1992, with Seona Smiles) and recently made his debut as both playwright and actor with Ferringhi. Mishra is working on a new book of verse, a second play and a novel set in post-coup Fiji.
Gulliver's New Travels
Acclaimed illustrator James Gulliver Hancock has an obsession with re-imaging his world with his drawings. His extensive travels are a key part of his creative drive. Combined with his obsession with scale and detail, it has culminated in Gulliver's New Travels, a stunning creative colouring book that is a modern take on the 18th-century Gulliver's Travels, playing with scale as in the land of Lilliput and the giants of Brobdingnag.
Taking in places from around the world, from all landscapes, and even future worlds and those in galaxies far away, the illustrations are playful, fanciful but always wonderful to look at.
And James's illustrations are crying out for a dash of colour. He wants you to engage with the drawings and make them your own with pens, pencils, paints and more. As you colour in, you'll discover great little details you hadn't spotted before, such as the diver swimming through the flowers and the tiny climber scaling a cactus.
A major creative talent provides a wonderful book to share with those with a passion for colour.
Raised in Australia, James Gulliver Hancock is now based in both Brooklyn, New York and his beach studio in Sydney. His print work has been used by Coca- Cola, Ford Motors, Herman Miller, the New York Times and Simon and Schuster. He is particularly known for his personal project All The Buildings in New York.

A Spiritual Travelogue
Have you ever dreamed of travelling around the world? Not merely on a shoestring but one that is multi-threaded that keeps on expanding and increasingly colourful and fulfilling. This is a story of a woman who made a modern day pilgrimage and spiritual journey as she traveled through India, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore and Australia not only on a budget but totally dependent on divine providence, trusting that all that she needs will be provided by God, by the universe. She found a way to balance her childhood Christian faith with new lessons and values of intention, law of attraction and gratitude. What began as a journey in physical miles ended up in spiritual mileage-into knowing herself, thus overcame fears and found herself. The journey included moments of just Being vs Doing, and coming to seeing human beings, herself and others as channels of love, peace and joy. A great story for those starting their own exploration of themselves and spirituality Website: www.RunWaters.blogspot.com
