I was standing in our backyard. In front of me were a dozen cardboard boxes. They were full of books – the first editions of my titles. Liberated from storage, these boxes were now a problem. What should I do with them?

I contemplated a  conflagration – a match tossed idly into the pile. Wouldn't work; the finest of Port Hope’s fire brigade would appear with alacrity, frightening Claire and the neighbours.

I had another sip from my mug. How to deal with this detritus of my younger self – still remembered fondly but no longer wanted?

Brilliant idea! Give the boxes to the local book store. I’ll sign some of the books with my usual flourish. Furby House Books could benefit, and I might see some overdue royalties!

Now they tell me that I have my own website – my faithful typewriter is apoplectic about the indignity.”

August's artwork is by artist Sonja Brown.


"Interestingly, each of these portraits is the result of a one session study, where I painted an old Masonite board that had a painted, scratched and generally distressed surface. On the advice of my teacher, mentor and friend Fiona Crangle, I allowed some of the previous markings to show through the images I was painting. The result was surprising, sometimes haunting and always interesting. I became captivated with the process itself and I painted a whole series of portraits and am now planning to work from my own photographs. I want to see if I too, can find in Steve McCurry's words "the essential soul peeking out".
