About The Hatch:  Britta Tate is searching for her brother who has gone missing in space. As she picks up his trail on another planet, she will be compelled to travel there and continue his failed mission.

Like her brother, she has been trained at EASA, and has advanced senses that provide her with unique skills and insights. She will push herself to her limit to find out what happened to him, connect with useful allies and help save her home planet of Earth.

For Britta, she will have to embrace change in all its forms and turn her back on the doubters to keep believing in the one constant, her own sense of what’s coming.

Two published novels… a series inspired by a true story

Over two spellbinding novels, follow the saga of the Soforo family as they flee their Italian city, Fiume, at the end of World War II and struggle to put their lives back together.

Published by Odyssey Books

In Port of No Return, the family loses everything when their house is bombed by the Allies and their city is taken by neighbouring Yugoslavia. They are left with no choice but to leave their home town. To get out safely, Ettore and Contessa must separate

In Wanderers No More,  follow Martino, the youngest of the sons, who must overcome a devastating setback, if he is to realise an almost impossible dream. A war-time debt is owing, love is lost and re-found and the past comes back to haunt them all.

Don’t miss this series that explores post-war struggles and 1950s’ Australian migrant history in a way that is warm and uplifting – and at times, tragic.
