Editorial Reviews

Review

Critique by Lajla Cline, writer and teacher/editor representing Kore Press, Tuscon, Arizona
 
In  Easy-Happy-Sexy, your use of language and detail are wonderful, whimsical, fantastical - "A pink taffeta dress...colour-washed orange by the desert dust"...and surreal, abstract in others.."She makes her palms flat to match white-fella's 'flat' and 'straight,'" etc. The diction mirrors a kind of flight felt in the time, and attention devoted to the interior landscapes of the characters: Ninija and her granddaughter, Gina.
 
.....an utterly unique and meaningful story...'

About the Author

This is the background to my novel 'Easy-Happy-Sexy.' 
I was backpacking around Australia and found myself one day in Alice Spring, a kind of inland cul-de-sac where all public passable roads terminate. Beyond Alice is thousands of miles of desert, the outback. The native people call it 'The Lands.' On my journey around Australia, the presence of Aboriginals fascinated me. I remember wondering why they wanted to live in developed cities around the perimeter of Australia when they had the whole of the interior as their natural Lands. I could not have known at that point that I was just about to find out.
I soon signed up to be interviewed for a Rotary project designed to help the old and young members of a tribe, Pydjindjara, to move back into traditional life in the Lands, and I was in fact chosen to join a small team. The board was looking for people who had an interest in ancient indigenous cultures and ways of being, and I had been working as a Music Therapist using aboriginal stories and songs, so I was very interested.
When we arrived, I met Ninija, the tribal leader, a small very elderly woman who was rumoured to be about 120 years old. I knew many things from that moment on that I had never known, and discovered sometime later that Ninija had deliberately called me to her psychically. Needless to say, she initiated me and became my spirit guide, and she still guides me to this day. 
I promised her that I would tell her story of the suffering caused by the domination of white Europeans to the whole world, and so I wrote this book. It is actually a modern-day fable using metaphor and magic as a means to developed peoples understanding the ancient desert ways. It uses stories in the way that the Lands people do.
