Hello my faithful readers, just letting you know that I am currently in the city of Darwin, in the Northern Territory Of Australia, after completing a three day and two night.experience on the Ghan train from Adelaide in the South to the Northern capital of Darwin, which is a 2720 kilometre journey.
Saw some incredible sights, and I hope to include my experiences in future stories. The Ghan train had a total of two engines and 38 carriages and it was 902 metres long.

Well I have finally started posting a new story.
This one is titled - Deception...
Iv'e read this story before, I hear you say, well yes, that could be possible.
It is one of my older stories, and one of the most popular.
Thanks to Chris for all his hard work with editing. I hope you enjoy the story.
Just letting you know that my next story - Youth Detained is currently with my editor, and I will be posting the first chapter next week hopefully.
It is a very short story, with just 3 chapters.
The next story after that, will be - Detained, a story that I had posted a few years back, which has been a favourite of most of my followers, so stay tuned, as that will be arriving in May / June.
As many have noticed Moggy has been offline for some time.
she has been my editor for a while and got to know her a bit with our many emails.
Because I knew what town she lived in, I was able to track down her phone number.
Sadly a recorded message from her ex husband announces that she has passed away.
Rest In Peace Dear Lady, you will be greatly missed.
Info Update; Moggy passed away on Friday the 6th of April, aged 55.
Just letting you know, that I have some major computer troubles.
I have sent it to my local computer repairers, but it could be at least a week
before I get the computer back.
Sorry for delays in posting new chapters on my stories.
Hello Happy Followers
I am very happy to announce, that thanks to an awesome follower.
I am been able to recover 8 lost stories, that I thought I had lost forever.
They are: Lost, Orphan - Reid, Tsunami, Farm Life, Grammar School, Life Turnaround, Province & New Australia.
It will be some time before I can get these reposted, as I wish to have them run through editors again.
If there are any editors interested in joining the team, it would be very much appreciated.
Regards Preston aka Quokka
Another 6 stories recovered, Deception, River Cruise, Super Max, Falsely Accused, Detained & Adventures.
Well I have just completed publishing my tenth story on GA, and began posting chapters of two more stories.
Those being Outback Corporation and Wellstead, with Outback Corporation being in two parts, the first has 9 chapters the second part has 5 chapters.
While the story - Wellstead has a total of 21 chapters.
I have also began writing a second book for the story - New Beginnings, titled - NB New Direction, the number of chapters is yet to be finalised,
which I will begin posting once Outback Corporation is complete.
A number of other stories are partly completed, and will be published once they are completed and edited.
Thankyou to all of my hard working editors and Beta Readers, plus all of my followers, for all of your continual Support.
I have three editors, all from very different time zones, which makes it fun trying to keep in touch with them. They are from UK, South Africa & USA,
and because I have a varied style of writing with different themes. A super big thanks to you.
I am so adorable in the photo, am I not?
I have had to take some time off from GA.
I have been still writing a little, starting a second story, with a
2nd book of New Beginnings, that is called NB - New Direction.
It still has to go through editing, so it will be a while before it appears on GA.
Meanwhile the next book of Outback is almost ready for publishing, so stay tuned for them.

I spent a few hours sailing today and it was bloody awesome...
The yacht was a Beneteau 40 foot, and it was great to have the wind in my face as we sailed in the large harbour,
with an average of 15 knot apparent winds.
The Shipwreck in the background, in the first photo is the Cheyes II, one of the last Whaling ships in Australia.
