I wish to let you know that the translation of my book La Grenouille dans le Billabong into English has been completed and has been published under the apt title A Frog in the Billabong.
The book was originally written in French from a French perspective and for the French market but many have asked me to have it translated. It is a funny book about my then 12 years in Tasmania as a “frog”, the many faux-pas Alain and I made, the culture shock, our many encounters, the food and wine industry, my then business Exquisite Flavours, Richmond where we lived (and we are back) of course. It’s also a book about Tasmanian History and culture. Above all it’s a book that tells of my love for Tasmania.
