All Aussies love a great party! No party would be complete without some fun, so below I have shared with you some facts about my Beautiful Home of Australia.
There are 1500 species of Australian spiders.
If you read about our spiders you might not like this: the average person swallows three spiders a year. NOT OF THE SIZE ABOVE! Eeeeek!
We have over 6000 species of flies, about 4000 species of ants, and there are about 350 species of termites in Australia.
Australia has the world’s largest population of wild camels with one hump.
The Tasmanian Devil does exist, and it has the jaw strength of a crocodile.
Sharks are immune to all known diseases.
There are more than 150 million sheep in Australia, and only some 20 million people.
We all appear to have a rather peculiar sense of humor (See definition of “understatement”)
You have no need to worry too much about swimming in our tropical waters, the box-jellyfish, blue ringed Octopus, and crocodiles won’t cause much of a problem, because the Great White Sharks have eaten them all. (I did warn you!) Sigh.
To give you time to slow down your heart rate take a look at my books.
I’d like to introduce you to my books and I do hope that you will find the time to check them out.
Acts Beyond Redemption Book 1 (Unintended Consequences)
In Book 1 of the ‘Unintended Consequences’ series, Acts Beyond Redemption takes you on a twisted, deadly journey.
Mike Matheson is head of a Special Task Force set up by the F.B.I to track down and apprehend the serial killers responsible for 18 brutal murders.
He and his team are exhausted, frustrated, and ready to burn out after almost five years and no leads.
Nothing in their experience has prepared them for this.
Nothing in their imaginations could conceive of the truth hidden in plain sight.
Someone on the inside, someone very powerful, is deflecting their weary eyes away from a truth too incomprehensible to be permitted to exist.
Revealing it and those that set it in motion would bring the most powerful country on earth to its knees. The corridors of power shake.
Who will be buried in the shattered remains of a country where freedom and honor are treasured above all things?
Just how far will those elected to protect and defend go, to keep the American dream alive?
Empty Chairs Book 1 (Standing Tall and Fighting Back) Suzanne Burke writing as Stacey Danson.
Stacey Danson, lived through and beyond horrific child abuse. This book tells of her brutal beginnings, the streets of Sydney at the age of eleven were preferable to the hell she endured at home.
She ran, and those streets became her home for five years. She was alone, ill, and afraid. Stacey also had an unshakeable belief that she would do more than just survive her life. She would not allow her future to be determined by the horrors of her past.
She reached out for something different; there had to be more to life; if she could only find it.
She had a dream of a life where pain and humiliation had no place. She was determined to find that life. Empty Chairs is the beginning of the journey.
Faint Echoes of Laughter. Book 2 (Standing Tall and Fighting Back) Suzanne Burke writing as Stacey Danson.
The shocking and spirited sequel to the much-praised ‘Empty Chairs’. Life on the streets of Sydney was preferable to the nightmare Stacey Danson had survived in the hell that was home.
She hit the streets running at the age of eleven, and armed with a flick-knife and a fierce determination to live a different life, she began the journey from the 1960s to today. For those that came to know ‘Sassy girl’ in ‘Empty Chairs’, and for those caring people that asked how her life worked out from there, ‘Faint Echoes of Laughter’ continues the story.
For those that haven’t met her yet, this book stands alone as a tribute to the kindness of strangers, the loyalty of true friendships and the way things really are on the streets of any town … anytime.
Once again, thanks for stopping by! Good luck on winning my giveaways! I’ll see you at the next stop of this awesome BOOK & BLOG BLOCK PARTY!
