It is also great to hear directly from readers and I've had more emails this week. Peter Foerster wrote: "I've just read Thunderbolt..... brilliant ... bloody brilliant. Thanks so much for bringing Himself and Mary Anne back to life. I love Oz history, you've done fab job!!"
Graham Woolley wrote: "I have finished reading the above book, which I enjoyed very much. It is not often one finds a book that is very hard to put down, this was one of those."
And Warwick Hastie, who had previously contacted me about the book, wrote about the website itself: "Will you please stop uncovering so much new stuff and updating your website, I can’t keep up, and have to keep updating my thesis...it’s driving me crazy....haha. No seriously, congratulations on the website: it’s outstanding. I can’t believe the extent of your research and output...really quite extraordinary...your determination, dedication, and eye for detail is an inspiration. My only disappointment is that you debunked the part about Mary Ann helping Fred escape Cockatoo...I really liked that bit of the myth!"
Indeed, the website will keep growing as more blog posts and myth debunking pieces are written. Stay tuned.
