To Get To Bird Lake… Is the story of a 40-year-old man from Streaky Bay, SA, who, after a long and acrimonious divorce took to the road. He drove to Cape York to visit some relatives whose coastal farm had recently been flooded by a massive storm on a king tide. He stayed a fortnight to help clean things up. After trying to fulfil his dream of eating a ham sandwich and drinking a cold beer in every town he visited he returned home to start again and write a novel. It is a crime-thriller road-trip tale with a killer twist. It is not yet finished.
