Literary Lunch

I had the pleasure of hearing Susan Duncan talk about her book Salvation Creek at a lunch at Pasadena on Pittwater last Friday. Susan, a former media high flier, gave up her exciting life for the peace of Pittwater after the two important men in her life died withn days of each other. Susan bares her soul as she chronicles her journey in Salvation Creek, a well written and easy to read story.
