Astrid (seated) with guests at the launch of 'Crystal Dreams'. Des Ross, the Piper, entertained all with many haunting tunes on the bag pipes.

The book launch of 'Shadow's Embrace'. Astrid signing a copy of the book for a guest. The launch was held at the historic home 'Grange' - at Grange, South Australia.

Astrid is a craftworker and keen student of all things historical. Here she shows some of her works - both book and craft. Photo courtesy of The Herald Newspaper.

A rare photo of the elusive 'Senna' in her pose as Cata-Hari. Senna was rescued as a 3 week old kitten and came to Astrid at the time of the publication of her vampire-romance, 'Shadow's Embrace'. Senna means 'shadow' in Serbian. (Astrid has English language tutored migrant Serbian refugees).

Astrid with Tina at St. John's Cemetery, Kapunda. In the background the large cross denotes the gravesite of the priest rumoured to haunt the cemetery and Reformatory (the ruins in the far background). A visit to the cemetery at night confirmed that the rumours of the haunting are true!
Kapunda is reputedly the 'most haunted town in Australia'.

Astrid's den with two cats on the Persian carpet...life is so tough for felinus!

Henry died suddenly on 4th April, 2008, after a short illness. He was aged 11. He was born to feral parents, but Henry decided that living rough was not for him and as soon as he could he introduced himself to me and became a house cat immediately.

Sam (short for Samantha) died on 2nd July, 2008 at aged 25. She was found as a 6 week old kitten.

Napper playing with a new kitten -- Edwina. Napper is a Keplie/Aussie cattle dog cross, retired from a farm and Edsi was one of two kittens found the day before my birthday two years ago.

Astrid's menagerie -- feeding time. This is an Aussie blue tongue lizard having its daily meal. When it is hot, the lizards will come into my verandah and lie outside the front door -- getting the cool air blowing on them from the air conditioner!
