It’s good to be a woman! Those are words I wasn’t sure I would ever say. For most of my life I have thought that it would have been better to have been a man.
Why? Mainly because they get to concentrate on one thing at a time. From the moment a man gets on the career ladder (and providing he doesn’t become a stay at home dad) he can pretty much concentrate on his job and his career. Women on the other hand tend to have to think of everything. Not only do they have jobs but they are predominately the main child provider, the payer of bills, the food shopper, the cook, the babysitter organiser, the holiday organiser, the schedule organiser when kids are sick, taking part in numerous clubs and attending gazillions of social activities and parties, the taxi driver, the nurse, the therapist and local community representative (e.g.. neighbour) and they’ve had to take a break in the middle of their career to have a family and get back on the career ladder afterwards.
But, as new scientific evidence has shown this week, there may be a reason for all of this. Women are indeed the stronger sex!

What’s the story about?
Hannah is just an ordinary girl with ordinary problems but with an extraordinary talent. When she plays the violin, something magical happens that changes Hannah’s life in a way she never knew possible. This chapter book captures the magic of the sea and the violin and is based on a true story.
Hannah loves her violin. Lost in the music, she can escape the problems of her parents divorce. She also likes to go to the Bay and dangle her feet in the water. One day she discovers something that will not only change her life but the lives of all the people who live around the Bay. The only thing is, she will have to make a commotion and be noticed and that’s not something Hannah is comfortable doing. She often hides behind friends or her violin but this time she can’t do that and if she wants to stop a building project which is about to start, she will have to do something and quickly. Will she have the courage? Will anyone listen? Will they come and hear her?
Christmas is definitely upon us along with all the madness that surrounds this time of year. But what does madness look like?
Yes, that looks like me pulling my hair out when Christmas is around the corner and we have presents to buy. And not just any presents. I’m talking about ‘the one’. You know ‘the one’. The one present that up until two days ago was not on anyone’s radar and there were plenty of them in a variety of stores. Then yesterday happened. All of sudden anyone who’s anyone now wants one and you can’t find one on any shop shelf or online.
