Writer On The Road

It's the journey that matters...

Have you started to write down your story, but don't know what to do with the mess of notes you have tucked away in a computer file. If you've ever thought about telling your story you'll find the tools here to help you do just that.

The show & its producer

There's a secret we intrepid adventurers know, a secret I learnt years ago when I lived on my yacht and sailed the Whitsundays here in Oz, and it's a secret that ninety percent of people don't know. Melinda Hammond has been writing stories for as long as she can remember. She teaches high school English, but dreams of running away with the circus.
