Tess's Tours - is a series of books derived from my 15 years' experience as a Seniors' Tour Guide and Tour Operator. They are fun, enlightening and hopefully entertaining.

The first book - NZ's Wild West Coast begins in the central North Island and wends its way south, down the west coast to Queenstown, and is available now. click here

The second book - Aussie Outback is due out by the end of October 2022. It goes from Adelaide to Wipena Pound and Arkaroola, across to Maree, up to Birdsville, across to Innamincka and Tibooburra then back down to Adelaide via Broken Hill. It was one heckof a trip.

The next books in the series that I am planning for the new year are NZ's High Country, The Australian Murray River and Adelaide to Darwin at this stage. 

On the backburner is STITCHES, the fourth in my NZ Historic Fiction series, which is undergoing a further rewrite. With any luck I hope to have this one out before Christmas 2022.
