Desley is proud of her writing group for publishing their short stories.


27th September 2022

On Friday, May 2021, 10 am, a group of ladies who had never written lengthy stories before, sat down at Desley's kitchen table with tea and scones. With Desley's guidance, they started to put the power of the pen to paper. They brainstormed and created ten characters and after naming them they started to write their own short stories from these ten characters. 

Friend and Author Michael Davies published the book. "Stories Around the Kitchen Table" and it will be launched across Port Macquarie and Wauchope in November and December. .
