About meI read - lots. I have at least one novel and one non-fiction book on the go all the time. Thrillers, some crime fiction and "literary" novels engage me most. My interests in non-fiction centre around theology, world religions, Franciscan spirituality, politics and chronic pain.

About my libraryMy collection is basically a professional Religious Education library, with a good sprinkling of Franciscan titles. I enjoy the generous inter-library loan facilities of my local public library, and borrow books rather than buy them.

Hi Ted,

Thanks for your wonderful post about my book. I’m humbled and grateful.

You asked if folks could buy it anywhere other than at my site - yes, on Amazon, here’s the link:

Once again, thanks for your kind review.

Best regards,

Thank you so much for the beautiful review of The Almond Tree. I hope it can shine a light so bright on the plight of the Palestinians that the whole world can see. Michelle
Many thanks for the book!

Can't promise I'll read it right away (already have 4 on the go at the moment), but I'll get to it soon and write a review.

Indeed... I've enjoyed Doctor Who since my childhood.
Thanks for the review and comments on how this works/doesn't work on Kindle! I was wondering and started to worry that it wouldn't be easy to get the links from Kindle. Makes me glad I put all the book review blogs in with the website address rather than hyperlinked. I can send you a pdf copy now if that will work better for you and will be doing a re-write in January. You'll get the updates free when it's ready. :)
I did like very much Steiner's "After Babel." One of my 5 star books.
I have been doing quite a bit of Common Knowledge work on LT and have been filling in "organizations" for Anglicans and Episcopalians. I am presuming "Anglican Church of Australia" for yourself and will put that on your author page, if you would like (or you can do it). I like filling in the connectivity, particularly when I saw how many Mormons (LDS) and Nazarene (The Church of the Nazarene is listed with as many people as the Church of England) are listed in LT, and there seemd to me to be an imbalance.
