So much I want to share, here in my blog about our fantastic journey across the Kimberley but we are heading westward for another bush camp, so the blogging trip update will have to wait. We are in Karratha, on the Pilbara coast of Western Australia. After a fast catch up on emails, refilling our fuel and water tanks and doing a few loads of washing to make our selves presentable again, Reg and I have decided to head right back into the bush, to Marble Bar, reputedly the hottest town in Australia though a very pleasant winters day there today of 27 degrees Celsius.
Western Australia, near thee Northern Territory
So please excuse the delays in updating my blog site while we enjoy this wonderful out of internet range wilderness, again. I will have stories pouring out of me that I am eager to share, and internet communication will become more accessible as we travel through the mining towns of Tom Price and Newman.
While we are in Tom Price in two weeks time, we will be exhibiting at the 'Nameless Festival,' which is held on the oval at the foot of the beautiful, 'Mount Nameless.' Doesn't that make you smile? Where else, but in outback Australia or a mining town, would Aussie humour dominate to the extent that local icons would be called 'Nameless', to signify that no one could think up a name everyone could agree on and the nameless title would stick?
I love this lack of sophistication and country humour and love becoming one with the locals, at whatever town I am in, for a short time of every year, before, during and following their big festival or show.
Our next event is the FeNaCINC festival at Karratha. I have five days to 'go bush', in, then I will be back online on the 31st of July, briefly, as that's the night before the biggest exhibition of the year for us, the 1st and 2nd of August is the festival itself and I'll come on line here with a few brief posts to let you know how the show is going for us, then we head inland, into the amazing Pilbara country side, towards Tom Price, it's an incredibly pretty town.
Ruth Randall's novel "A Judgement in Stone," opens with this line.
"Eunice Parchman killed the Coverdale family because she could not read or write."
In open mystery novel, the reader knows who the murderer is, from the beginning; the mystery is why, and how, they did it, and if they will be caught.
In The Stolen Years series of novels, the reader has a view of who commits many of the crimes. There is plenty of suspense while no one else suspects who the murderer is.
The Stolen Years Series
From an Australian bestselling author comes mystery thriller of determination to find one's place in a world that men are threatening to tear apart.
Psychological thrillers often deal with characters who have post traumatic stress disorder often caused by a mysterious suspenseful situation as happens within The Stolen Years Series of novels by Ryn Shell.
Noir or hardboiled, often detective fiction is a genre of crime novels featuring detectives or private detectives who see the dark, edgy side of life. As in The Stoles Years, Ryn Shell is writing of a dark side of Australian history these novels fit the rural noir sub-genre. These novels by Ryn Shell are lightened, to make the reading enjoyable, by the family saga story of resilience and love.
Historical mystery genres are often crossed with other genres. Ryn Shell has always combined two or more genres or sub-genre in the telling of the complex stories in her books. Her characters come to life in her head while she writes them and demand more.
