Book Review – Catching Teller Crow by Ambelimn Kwaymullina and Ezekiel Kwaymullina

It's so clever, because while the title as a whole makes sense, each word in the title is also the name of a character. Beth Teller is the first character … Continue reading Book Review – Catching Teller Crow by Ambelimn Kwaymullina and Ezekiel Kwaymullina

Book Review – Just One Word, Just One Smile by Tony Caplice

  This is a bit different to my usual read. I don't usually read memoir, but I've heard Tony talk about his book a couple of times now, and he read a section of his book out at the Little Laneway Festival, in November last year, and I had to read more. The story is … Continue reading Book Review – Just One Word, Just One Smile by Tony Caplice

Welcome to my very belated post about the Tamar Valley Writers Festival!

Welcome

  Hello! And Welcome to the website of Heather Ewings. I'm a Tasmanian author of mostly speculative fiction, a chocoholic, a bookworm and a would-be hermit! My blog posts tend to be sporadic, coming in clumps and then none for months. If it's been a while since I've posted, I'm most likely working on something, … Continue reading Welcome

#AWW Review; Songlines by Carolyn Denman

So last year I had the opportunity to read this amazing book. Below is an adaptation of my Amazon review: "Can you hear the river crying?" Songlines was such an amazing, beautiful story, it gave me goosebumps! And so Australian. I loved the way the author has woven together strands from completely different cultures in such … Continue reading #AWW Review; Songlines by Carolyn Denman

Review – Egg and Spoon by Gregory Maguire

Stars crown the world, she said, but the lights in your eyes, those are stars, too. They make up your crown, he said. I am no queen of anything. Something too few of us know while we are alive, he told her. We are all crowned with glory. Peasants no less than kings. Egg and … Continue reading Review – Egg and Spoon by Gregory Maguire
