If you are going to be in the Whitsundays in June, this event will be wonderful. Gorgeous location, yummy food, inspirational speakers (including me haha) and some great books. I am delighted to be presenting at the Whitsunday Writers Festival being held on 16-18th June.
You can buy tickets
Here's the blurb:
Linda Frylink Anderson :
Author, artist, scribbler, wife, mother, teacher and adventurer.
Linda set sail to circumnavigate the world with her 'Captain Underpants' aboard a boat built in their backyard. Armed with her satellite phone and laptop, Linda could write her blog anywhere in the world. Enjoying her tales, readers of Linda's blog encouraged her to write a book. Scared at first, Linda managed to publish her first memoir 'Sailing in my Sarong, Around the World - a 30-year dream' colourfully illustrated with her original art and photography.
Linda's recent book 'Salvage in my Sarong, The Mediterranean dream in a rescued boat,' tells the remarkable story of how Captain Underpants surprises her (and himself), by winning an online bid for a wreck of a boat in the Caribbean. "Lati" had been abandoned, ransacked and almost stolen by pirates. Eventually a romantic cruise through the Mediterranean to the Greek islands became a reality.
Linda still likes to wear sarongs, and loves nothing more than sharing her passion for art and travel, encouraging and motivating others to live their own dreams.
These days she escapes the world to her bush studio in northern New South Wales and heads off to sea when she hears the call of the ocean. www.valiam.com.au
