Marcie Meet Marcie

It’s my pleasure to share these photos of my beloved Aunty Marcie, my mum’s big sister. Aged 94, Aunty Marcie has 6 children, 16 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren (plus many adoring nieces and nephews.) Marcie also very kindly agreed to me borrowing her beautiful name for the heroine of my first children’s book, Marcie Gill and the Caravan Park Cat, out now. The two Marcies first met in manuscript form in Adelaide in 2020, and then late last year I very happily sent Aunty Marcie one of my first copies, hot off the press. (With thanks to my cousins Gerri & Di for the photos.) I’m so glad/relieved to say the real life Marcie gave the fictional Marcie her seal of approval. If you’d like to read more about Marcie Gill and the Caravan Park Cat, please visit this link.
