K is for …

I’ve taken on the challenge of an A-Z during April – one post each day on a chosen theme. My theme? Books and writing, of course…

K is for Kali

Allow me to introduce you to my pooch.

Glenbriar Catch a Star…or, as we call her, Kali, Adventure Spaniel (as an aside her Instagram tag is @adventurespaniel).

She might be from a good line of cocker spaniel royalty, but we named her after Kali, the Hindu Goddess. It’s a Pluto, astro thing… don’t ask.

Kali first came into our home in February 2009 – when she was just 12 weeks old. Just how cute was she?

These days she comes to work with me every day – and by coming to work with me I mean she lies on her cushion beside my desk or on one underneath it. There have been times when he snores can be heard on the teleconferences I do for the day job. She holds the honorary position of Staff Engagement Officer.

Hard at work

K is for Kindle

I know some people are completely digital and others will only read print books – I’m happily hybrid. I usually have at least two books on the go at any time – one on the kindle and one print.

The Kindle has changed the way I travel and read. Travelling used to be a reading nightmare – these days I don’t worry about excess kilos of the book variety, I simply have my kindle in my bag. I do, however, still buy a real book at the airport.

As to whether I save money buying books on kindle? Yeah, nah….not really. I do take advantage of Book Bubs and Amazon specials though.

K is for Kiwi

I love all things New Zealand and like to think that if I ever wasn’t Australian, then I could absolutely be a Kiwi. Just saying.

I’ve so far set two books partly in New Zealand – Wish You Were Here and Book No. 5…with more planned…but I’ll tell you about that when we get to N and Q.
