Taste of Life
'Taste of Life' was the most successful health cookbook ever published in Australia. Alone, it sold more than 1.2 million copies in Australia, New Zealand, USA and UK. There were 22 titles in the series, including compilations and hardback editions for the UK and USA market that sold in total more than 2.2 million copies.
Remember my 'Taste of Life' cookbooks? Perhaps you're asking how does a healthy-eating cookbook author write 2.2 million cookbooks over 19 years and then suddenly start writing fiction - based on her own real life events!
Oh, the answer to that question is easy.
I know my new book will surprise many, but that's the way it should be. With the gift of years your life changes. Add the odd life crisis, twists and turns you didn't expect, the loss of loved ones, and of course the redefining of self is inevitable.
I'm certainly redefined in my 60+years because of certain challenges and the way I've chosen to accept those challenges. My quest to find answers, and my open-mindedness to look beyond what is currently knowable, plus my great desire to never be stationary for too long has allowed me to adapt and change as my life has changed. Have to say, I particularly love this chapter of my life.
Prior to 2006, I could never have imagined writing 'Seagulls on the Ganges'. But, there it is, life surprising you when you least expect.
