Terence in Townsville

ISBN 978-1-922527-34-9 PAPERBACK
Terence is back from his adventurous trip to Africa – back at the farm near his hometown, Townsville!

Terence in Townsville introduces a number of new characters like Tiara the gorgeous girl turkey, Gregory the German grasshopper, Mr Pink Longneck the fat flamingo relief teacher, and Bread and Bun Baker, the terrible emu twins.

In Terence in Townsville, Terence has an interesting encounter with a Black Widow Spider! He falls off his bike and landed on his head! He loses Tammy, his little sister, during a ‘Footy’ game!

The question remains: Who will be served as the dinner meal for the farmer and his wife during the Christmas of 2022?

Enjoy the NON-STOP action, silliness, and fun in Terence’s own backyard! Enjoy the FUN SHEET after every chapter with life lessons, farm facts, quizzes and Bible scriptures!

About the Author

My experience and adventures as a primary school teacher during the last decade inspired me to target the seven to eleven age bracket. Communication with students about my new book gave me sufficient feedback to feel that the ‘Terence the Turkey’ series would be well received by the young generation.

This book consists of short stories, with most adventures taking place on a farm with a variety of animals. The main character is of course Terence, and he is well supported by others like Gopher the goose, Baby the bull, Patrick the pig, Ernie the eagle, Gerald the goat, Uncle Murdock, the Fearfeathers, Aunt Suzie the swan, and many others.

My main idea is to tell interesting, and some funny stories in every chapter. Each story concludes with a ‘FUNSHEET’, and hopefully this will get the children’s attention!

The ‘fun sheet’ includes a Bible scriptures, life lessons, vocabulary, and interesting facts. There will be questions and quizzes, and all the answers will be provided at the back of the book.

PAPERBACK

Wear a Mask, Cupid!

Love (or at the very least, desire) always finds a way, right? The true stories in this collection reflect our basic human need to connect with others, physically and emotionally – and we won’t let a little thing like a pandemic stand in our way.

Sometimes funny and romantic, often disastrous and heartbreaking, our brave contributors share their adventures in online dating, dating long distance, dating by stealth, and trying to date but failing. Despite being light-hearted or simply-told, all of the stories demonstrate in their own way, how deeply complex, lonely and profound life can be in lockdown.

Tina Morganella, editor of 'Wear a Mask, Cupid!
Dr Maria Isabel Jimenez, editor of 'Wear a Mask, Cupid!'

PAPERBACK

StupIT People

StupIT People is a tongue in cheek exposé of the world of modern big technology business. It’s a world where corporate madness and self-interest rules. One in which clients and employees simply don’t matter, as senior executives (aka company psychopaths) pursue short-term personal profit and internal point-scoring at absolutely any cost.

The story revolves around Michael Mansfield, a loyal and hard-working IT Sales Executive who strives to do the right thing by his company. For Michael, saving stupid people from themselves, navigating the constant back-stabbing within the business, and dealing with corporate political correctness gone mad has become a way of life.

This light-hearted tale of redemption will resonate with anyone who has experienced the sheer head-scratching absurdity that often exists within the modern business bubble.

About the Author
