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.
