The Other Side of the World

The Other Side of the World  (2004) Post 405

 The Other Side of the World is a book of poems I wrote with an
online friend. Her name is Sara Quest and we've never met. She lives in the US and I'm in Australia and she's younger than I am, but our interests, tastes and fascination with words are as close as if we were related. I don't remember whose idea it was, but back in 2003 or 2004 Sara and I started writing poetry from our cultural and geographical perspective. The result was The Other Side of the World.


Sally is Sally Odgers; author, manuscript assessor, editor, anthologist and reader. She runs and Prints Charming Books. (Sally is me, by the way, and I am lots of other things too, but these are the relevant ones for now.)

The goal for 2017 was to write a post a day profiling the background behind one of my books; how it came to be written, what it's about, and any things of note that happened along the way. If you're an author, an aspiring author, a reader or just someone who enjoys windows into worlds, you might find this fun. The books are not in any special order, but will be assigned approximate dates, and pictures, where they exist. 2017 is now behind us, but I ran out of year before running out of books, so the blog will continue for at least the next month or so.
