Here in the southern hemisphere we are enjoying spring, and lighter evenings. We have just had our first long weekend of the season, Labour Weekend, and many New Zealanders like to take this opportunity to get away and celebrate the end of winter and the hope of a good summer.
I spent the weekend in Sydney, a city I love visiting. Walking around Circular Quay and the Opera House I couldn't help but be reminded of a visit I made to Sydney while I was writing Driftwood. I had decided to set part of the book there and spent quite a lot of my trip making copious notes, and deciding on settings for various scenes.
