He has been calling me for years. She didnt mean to listen. But his haunting sound resonated with her wild soul. A gypsy soul, blessed to wander this existence freely. As freely as the wind blows through the vastness of memories you can't quite seem to grasp.
She and the wind were separated all those years ago. They used to dance on the night while bolts of lightning played with their hair. Electricity coursing through their very being. Coursing through their love, their laughter and tears. As time continued to pass they were parted by galaxies of moonbeams and silence.
A crevice of silence so far and wide they spend an eternity aimlessly searching for one another. Both hoping to catch the other but never do. For she is wild as the wind and neither will ever surrender their freedom We all have a fragile pearl that resides deeply within us. Most will never see it. Some will seek it out. And a few careless thieves will try to steal it. It was formed over many years of gentle wearing. A rhythmic wearing of sand and grit, delicately infused with love, heartache and tears; gently eroding away to reveal a luminous pearl.
This vulnerable pearl illuminates the night sky and acts as a beacon for her mirror. Across the oceans her mirror sees her iridescence and travels through time, galaxies and memories to her precious shore. It is the hope within the pearl that acted like a siren for her mirror. The mirror could hear and feel his pearl yearning and calling for him and he just knew.
He knew that he had been blessed. For he had been searching for his pearl for years now; the precious pearl that completes him She is made of simplicity. Of laughter, love and teardrops, and vulnerable words that feel like quivering kisses.
Of endless stars, galaxies and moonlight collapsing into each other like waves on the ocean. A gentle shard of compassionate light that simply yearns to twirl, sing, laugh and write for the rest of her days A perfect title that combines my immense love of roses, poetry, the human form and all things vintage x I hope you enjoy We extend a warm and welcoming invitation to one and all to attend our opening night and hope to see you all there!!!

This is a very candid chat and one I am sure you will be amazed at.
Your book is an inspiration to all those suffering from Anorexia and for those women enduring a negative marriage and domestic violence. Your message is very clear and encourages people to ask for help or to get out of failing marriages with dignity and grace.
Thank you once again for being so frank and sincerely open. An extraordinarily frank and open book about true love, a failing marriage and a downward spiral into anorexia, depression, alcoholism and suicide.

Thank you to all those literature lovers who are taking the time to share their feelings and though ts!! Keep the reviews and selfies coming!!! You write so well and I love the way the book is set out I am sure it will help many people.
I read it from cover to cover and had trouble putting it down. It is up there with the best that i have ever read and i read a lot. There were large parts of it than should be made compulsory reading for upper school students.
A great read that I would recommend to everyone. It's so relieving to know that we aren't alone. I also found the history components compelling. So much to learn that Australia still does not know about. A must read for any one who loves to read. I drove from kms last week just to purchase this book to take with me for the Easter break. What I got was a beautifully written account of love, heartache and mental illness.
One of the best books I have read and I will be making everyone in my family read it. Over booklovers from all over the Wheatbelt, Great Southern and Perth gathered at the literary soiree to not only help celebrate the release of Always On My Mind but also raise funds and much needed awareness towards rural mental health, anorexia, disordered eating and suicide.
JCP are dedicated to improving the world around us and their literary list focuses only on books to enhance life. The themes woven into Always On My Mind are strikingly authentic, brutally transparent and shares with the reader many unfaltering truths including a well-researched account of the shearing industry; the degradation, dehumanisation and hardship faced by our Aboriginal people since colonization; the intoxicating beauty and ceremony of the Maori culture; the heartbreaking disintegration of a love destined to last forever and a crystalline account of an unstable mind.
Every theme throughout Always On My Mind is laced with the profound certainty that compassion, acceptance and forgiveness really do prevail. Audience interaction and questions were encouraged which resulted in a profound, inspiring and moving forum that allowed discussion and safe conversations which helped to increase understanding and reduce the stigma towards mental health.
The event also saw Megan Henry share an intimate author reading of Always On Mind followed by many questions from the audience in regards to the writing and publishing process and her own lived experience with mental health.
The launch of Always On My Mind concluded with a personal author signing and endless cups of teas and more intimate sharing. A big thank you to one and all who attended in particular the guest speakers Chris Harris and Jo Drayton. If you would like to get your hands on a copy of Always On My Mind Ebook version will be available from kindle, amazon among others early April.
Was blessed to have a country chinwag with Chayce from Rural Focus about the upcoming official release of 'Always On My Mind' and its important themes of shearing, shearing contracting, rural mental health and Indigenous history on Friday.
The interview aired Monday morning of You know when you have a dream and you don't really think it will ever happen?? Well today a dream of many years came true - today 'Always On My Mind' arrived all the way from Sydney on the back of a ute and was delivered right to my door!!!!!
I still can't believe it. They arrived out of the blue on March 20th, which also happened to be my birthday! I'm still in shock that the moon and stars collided to gift me the most amazing birthday present ever. After many years I'm still in shock that I am able to hold my heart in my hands xx Vintage wrapped, personalised copies are available from: Pictured is the vast area that our shearing business covered in the beautiful Wheatbelt and Great Southern of Western Australia over the many years of shearing contracting.
At the peak of our business we had over eight hard-working shearing crews over 80 employees located in Dumbleyung, Kukerin, Pingrup, Harrismith, Kulin, Lake Grace, Newdegate, Holt Rock, Lake King, Lake Varley and Ravensthorpe travelling the long distances to shear in over twelve varying shires. Shearing is a twenty-four-seven lifestyle and deeply loved by all in the industry from the contractor, to the cockie, to the shearer, classer, presser and woolhandler.
Shearing is deeply imbedded into the heart and once in, will remain there forever Like many authors who research assiduously, I too, just like them, have chosen to publish the Bibliography on my website for the readers reference. Threlkheld New South Wales. Threlkeld, Missionary to the Aborigines, Australian Institute of Aboriginal Studies, With any manuscript there is a word count limit.
For most memoirs the intended, ideal word count for best marketability is 80,, Every word is precious and one must stick to the guidelines. I will be honest in revealing that my first draft was a beautiful, heartfelt beast.
A beast of at least , words. Emotionally I thought I did really well, but it was far from good enough. I had to get ruthless and start culling the memories of my heart, my family and my everyday life. All the things that were irrelevant to the themes of the story line had to go. They had to be culled. I had to get brutal and accept that this was the publishing process and it would in fact make the story shine brighter than it had ever done before.
Goodness I was pleased. You'd think a 4oK word decrease would be satisfactory - but there was still room for improvement. In fact, this was just the start. My skilful editor was delightfully happy with the unique storyline however she wanted to hone my prose to allow the words of my heart to permeate even deeper into the heart of the reader.
This was code for 'more had to go' and 'less is more'. After the endless hours, days, months and years of researching, writing, editing, publishing and more and more editing I too, just like you; the reader cannot wait to read and absorb the evolution that is Always On My Mind. It has blossomed from mere words into a beautiful, heartfelt and captivating rural memoir that deeply showcases the intimacy of the heart and country livin'.
The words of Always On My Mind are not just mine, they are yours too. They belong to the reader, to be shared, to be read, to be absorbed, to be discussed. As the weeks morph into days, the book launch is swiftly descending upon us and Always On My Mind will soon take flight into the heart of the reader.
This has been a long time coming and if I am honest I never really believed it would happen. There is not a day that goes by that I do not feel blessed that a publisher waaaaay over in Sydney resonated with my heart and original themes. The heart of a country chick based in rural Western Australia who not only loves shearing and words but also transparently revealing the intimacy of the heart. Revealing that we are all just mere people who feel the same sentiments.
People who feel and experience joy, heartache, happiness, pain, despair and love. Like many authors who research assiduously and use unique words, I too, just like them, have chosen to publish the Glossary here on my website for the readers reference.

It took at least six months of submissions before getting a positive response from a publishing house and this was after many attempts to secure a Literary Agent to represent Always On My Mind and rewriting my Query Letter and submission over and over again.
From this submission process, I received two positive emails; one from a Literary Agent in Sydney and another from an Australian Literary Agent living and working in New York. In most cases, a writer does not even get a response, let alone feedback.
One Literary Agent liked the originality of my themes and requested chapters of Always On My Mind and the other, requested only 20 pages 'of my best work'. It was while emailing back and forth in an attempt to secure a Literary Agent that I received an amazing publishing offer from a leading publishing house in Sydney.
Jane Curry Publishing had my submission for less than eight days before emailing back with an offer to publish. I still remember how shocked I was when I received the email.
I had heard that most writers sit on their manuscripts for years before they even get a response so I knew the task and road ahead was gonna be long. To receive that email literally knocked my socks off. Since accepting the publishing offer in October life has been one big beautiful whirlwind of endless editing, editing and more editing.
