Can You Think of a Title for My New Book?

The front garden view from my writing room

I’m just about to send the first few chapters of my latest non-fiction book to my agent who loved the earlier draft. All I need is a title. If you can think of one, I’d sure appreciate hearing from you.
Just drop a line via the contact page of my website: www.michelegierck.com.au

About the manuscript

It’s a post-injury come-back tale in which the bush, the ocean, a bloke (a fellow) and travel all play their part.

Here’s the pitch.
When Michele, a broken down sojourner (kind of Liz Gilbertish), meets Mac, a dedicated river scientist (think a young David Attenborough), she is drawn into his orbit, the gravity of which propels her onto an uncharted trajectory.

If you’d like to know more about this book, including the title that we choose or publication date, just sign up to the newsletter on my website. (www.michelegierck.com.au)

Pottering in the Garden Generates Creative Ideas

Pottering in the Garden Generates Creative Ideas

There’s nothing like pottering in the garden, losing yourself in spring blooms, to get creative ideas. The garden is my writer’s retreat. I’m most appreciative of this space as I edge closer to finishing the writing of my next book.

The Twelfth Raven – a fabulous read

The Twelfth Raven – a fabulous read


The Twelfth Raven is one of the most beautiful books I’ve read — non-fiction — in a while. It’s upbeat and insightful even though it’s mainly the story of Doris Brett’s husband’s stroke and recovery, and Doris’s role accompanying him. Anyone who has found themselves thrust into the medical system, and has experienced it as an outsider, will relate to this account. It’s an inspiring recollection of lives that are well lived, and also well reflected upon.
