Sally and her husband, Steve, run High House Farm -- in use for generations and set in a beautiful, wild landscape. In a fresh and funny voice all her own, Sally tells the story of the shepherding life with two kids, Mavis the Sheepdog, one very Fat Pony, and many, many sheep.

Filled with grit and humor, eccentric animals and local characters, this is the perfect book for anyone who has ever wondered what it's like to pack up and find a new life on the other side of the fence.

The Paprika Diary - A Lonely Secret is a story of the evil that lives amongst us, and the evolution of the human spirit. Anna Gonda, an attractive raven-haired author in 1940's Hungary, strikes a fearless pose until communism forces her to make a difficult decision. It was time to leave everything that she held dear to her heart, even her boyfriend, Attila Paprika, an insecure pessimist who measures his manhood with drinking contests and gruelling mountain bike rides. Attila surprises Anna by joining her in a daring escape to England. After the couple is blessed with a daughter, Anna is mysteriously drawn to Australia, land of prosperity and opportunity. Enjoying the good life as new Aussies, they have no idea that a monster is lurking in their neighbourhood. Life will never be the same as it twists into a disturbing tale of fear and survival.
