Many books were sold and signed – with Phil Carman having a lovely chat with everyone who approached him and proceeds from door sales going towards the MND Foundation (Motor Neurone Disease Foundation Australia)

Don’t miss out on hearing Bill Robertson, ex-police and author of No Witness, No Case, discuss his latest book, Fox, at Glenroy Library tomorrow from 7pm onwards.
If you’re not aware of what the furore around Fox is about;
“Colin Fox, member of the Stolen Generation. He is principled, a protector, tent boxer and SASR warrior. As a boy he witnessed the murder of his sister Lucy and experienced extreme abuse. As a man he interrupted a serious assault upon his mentor, Caroline Connors and later became an integral member of her family. Highly respected by his SASR unit, he was sent to the UK for special training and there connected with members of his white father’s family for the first time. A passionate affair with a member of the English aristocracy resulted in his jailing for alleged rape. Whilst incarcerated, Caroline Connors and her daughter Judy are murdered. Fox swears revenge. As a consequence he meets a vicious Melbourne bikie gang involved in drugs, gun running and dog fighting, a gang which also harbours Caroline’s killer. Justice is effected in Fox’s own unique manner.”

Toni Grant and her crime thriller/romance Serpent Song have taken hold of many readers and media outlets, and rightly so, as we follow the trail with Francesca Salucci as she investigates the suspicious death of a biker which takes her from Sydney to Rome – all the way into a small town on the Italian Riviera where she reunites with an old lover and she has no choice but to confront her past and origins. Toni Grant wrote this enthralling tale in a mere 8 months with some exceptionally good resources, one being her husband Police Minister and ex-cop with an incredible 23 years experience, Troy Grant.

Ros Ben-Moshe launched her amazing book, Laughing at cancer this past weekend in Melbourne to a large room of guests all enraptured to hear her speak about not only her book but her work with being a health and wellness practitioner and the life of being a laughter yogi. Her book, Laughing at cancer is a unique book as most books about cancer are Q&A’s, outline the latest scientific research advances, are written from a “what to expect” orientation, or in some instances are from a comedic perspective on someone’s personal experience. This book, whilst infused with humour, hope and inspiration also includes some scientific evidence, making the content factually rigorous and is available in all good bookstores now
Not to stop there, as Ros is never one to slow down on her path to bringing about smiles, information and support around the dialogue we have about ill-health and the practice of health and wellness, she also appeared on Channel 31’s The Shtick which is a showcase of community events, information and entertainment for the Jewish and non-Jewish community. If you didn’t have the opportunity to watch The Shtick when it first aired it is available on Youtube: Ros Ben-Moshe’s appearance on The Shtick – June 14th, 2017
