Dreaming With Eyes Open

To celebrate the 2022 Book Week theme , I recorded a song from the poem of the same title by South Australian author, Mike Lucas. I then created the video below for a bit of fun. I hope you enjoy it.


Melody Finch


Melody Finch is a story about the hardships of drought in Australia’s Murray Darling Basin, as seen through the eyes of its native wildlife.

When Melody Klomp turns into a Diamond Firetail Finch, she begins an amazing journey from Charleville in Queensland to the Coorong in South Australia. Along the way, she meets many wonderful birds, frogs, seals, and even a platypus.

Follow Melody’s outback adventure through a magical world where animals work together in an eternal fight for survival.

Melody Finch is humorous, informative and well written with interesting characters.
Well done!
