@em_readman: Obsessed with the discovery that "freelance" comes from a medieval term for a mercenary warrior (who is sworn to no lord.) A literal free lance. I am a knight.

@TabitaSurge: It's ma's funeral tomorrow. She was an undiagnosed autistic woman: I'm sharing my eulogy as a love letter to autistic parents 'When I met with the celebrant to start preparing for this funeral, he asked what mum was like. What were her hobbies and interests? Gardening, perhaps?'

Prof. Peter Stanley, UNSW, Prime Minister's Prize for History 2011

In The Woolgrower's Companion, Joy Rhoades pulls off the novelist’s greatest challenge, confronting readers with surprises that - however shocking - are inevitable.

Peter Selgin, winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award for Fiction, and author of The Inventors, a memoir.

Joy Rhoades took a hold of my heart and squeezed it tight – a wonderful debut that is both un-put-downable and deeply moving.

Julie Gibbs, Publisher

Utterly compelling The Woolgrower’s Companion draws you in, layer by layer, until by hand and heart, you live in the world on the page.
