My website is for those genealogists who are researching my family lines, and those who are interested in knowing something about me and my writing. I have been an Indie publisher for many years and started out using online software, Blurb and Memento, to publish books about holidays and my family, particularly my sons and grandchildren.

Of particular interest is 'Until Travelling Days Are Done', an account of five road tours in Victoria and South Australia taken by my parents between 1927-1932 in a 1924 Studebaker across the Australian Alps. Another of interest is the autobiographical poems of my grandfather, James Philip Hewlett titled 'A Prodigal Bard'.


My most recent achievement is the publication of my first book on Amazon, a memoir, on Amazon. 'A Girl Who Didn't Fit in: Crushed by Gaslighting But Not Defeated'. While emotionally difficult to write because of the privations of my early childhood doing so enriched my life immensely. In retrospect, it is one of the best things, if not the best thing, that I have ever done for myself.
