I will be starting to post ‘Fearless Fred and the Flood’ out this coming week – and $(NZ)2 from every book I sell personally will be going to our local Rescue Helicopter

Read a bit about him…

Fearless Fred personifies the power of the imagination, especially for the very young.  He’s back in this new adventure, now sporting pirate garb and ready to take on fresh challenges — whatever the weather.  Prepare to be won over by a jaunty rhyming text and bright and breezy illustrations that together reveal the chaotic charm of the farmyard.  This sequel will cement Fred’s character in readers’ hearts, as the small country kid with the big imagination.

Fred retails at $(NZ)20 and is post free within New Zealand.  Reply to this post if you are interested or reach me through my ‘contact’ page.

Storm clouds gathered in more ways than one yesterday.  First of all I discovered that Windows had started downloading Windows 10 onto my computer while I was away from my office, and I was a bit reluctant to stop it at that stage for fear of doing further damage.  I knew it was going to be a problem with some of my software, which was the reason I kept turning down their free offer.  Sure enough, I am having untold trouble with my photography downloads.  Still working on that but I did manage to get some down through a tortuous process – so here is my mood…


I will be starting to send ‘Fred’ out to those who have already ordered a copy next week, so please message me at sudrm@xtra.co.nz to give me your address and to arrange payment. Congratulations to those people who will be receiving a free copy of ‘Fred and the Dragon’.

The books arrive from the printer this coming Monday, and will cost $NZ20.00 each, with free postage for New Zealand and Australia.  Fred would love to travel further so contact me on my ‘get in touch’ button above to inquire.  Payment can be made through Paypal.

I am intending to give $2 from every book I sell to the Northland Emergency Services Trust for the Rescue Helicopter.  I’ll keep you updated with that.
