My name is Debbie Robson and I am the author of Tomaree, a WWII love story set in Port Stephens, New South Wales, Australia and Crossing Paths: the BookCrossing novel inspired by that wonderful website www.bookcrossing.com. I am a booklover, bookcrosser and firm believer in synchronicity. There is no such thing as coincidence!
I am on the hunt for an agent/publisher for my novel set in Mayfield in 1920 and a screenplay set in Sydney in 1937. My current blogs are about the research I did for my Mayfield novel with the working title of The Grey Silk Purse (now known as I Remember the White) and for my new manuscript with the working title of Paris Next Week.
In the midst of all this, a new character called Zach has burst into my life. He is a mysterious Sydney taxi driver with special powers and he is changing lives on the streets of Sydney any time between 1920 and 1960. As well as getting acquainted with Zach, I am also keeping an eye out for the New Moon Dance Club that hosted the New Year’s Eve dance party for 1930 at the Trade’s Hall in Newcastle but the club is proving elusive. Perhaps Zach may take a trip to Newcastle and hunt the club down for me!. Would love to hear from anyone interested in any of the above.
And by the way if you have found a message in a bottle with the flyer below please contact me. 20 messages in a bottle were released to celebrate the launch of my book, Ten bottles were released in Newcastle Harbour on 1/1/2011 and ten bottles in Swansea Channel 8/1/2011. It would be wonderful if one of them turned up!
