‘Life’s Journeys’ – a new book by the Ubud Writers’ Group (incl me!)

Life is a journey that we all take, regardless of the directions we choose and the choices we make.

This new book features short stories and poems about journeys – whether they reflect travel to actual places or journeys on the colourful and winding roads of life.

‘Life’s Journeys’ also contains photographs highlighting some of the exotic destinations – predominantly Bali where the writers are based.

The symbolic imagery on the front cover shows that a rich diversity of writing is contained within these pages – ranging from Balinese temples to cicaks (the small lizards found everywhere in Bali and beyond).

In fact, by clicking here you can see my own pictures of cicaks and read one of my poems featured in the book called ‘Cicak’.

Jackie Leitch, author of The Zul Enigma, reviewed our book, saying, ”This delightful collection of prose, verse and photographs is often interspersed with humour, yet always insightful.

By interweaving fictitious and factual stories with contributors’ in and out of Bali experiences, the finished work resembles a rich, Ikat fabric, the textile for which the island is so famous.

Congratulations Ubud Writers’ Group… you have produced another winner”.

The Ubud Writers’ Group consists of Carol Frei, Lesley Dormer, Jean Handwerk Lee, Shane Mc Rae, Leslie Hanslow, Wahyu (Bayu) Budianto, Julie Silvester, Ellen Schafer, Alexa Bauer, Steve Castley and Jen Richardson.

Let the group share some of their life’s journeys with you.

‘Life’s Journeys’ is available through me as well as selected retailers in Bali.

A book launch will be held on Sun, 4 Nov 2012 at Bayu’s Kitchen, Penestanan, Ubud, Bali at 6pm – we would be delighted to see you there.
