Free sample

Lois Nicholls discovers the grass is not always greener on the other side when she emigrates to Australia with her young family. While she speaks the same language she often experiences a cultural divide and lack of understanding by locals. The scorching heat is unbearable and a homesick fog also threatens to derail her notion of a romantic adventure in a foreign land. This is a humorous, frank account of what it's really like to leave all that is familiar and loved to start a new life down under.

About the author

Lois Nicholls was born in Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. She migrated to Brisbane, Australia in 1997 with her husband and firstborn son. She is a former newspaper and magazine journalist, gardener, furniture fixer-upper, spontaneous entertainer, bargain hunter, wife and mother of three grown children. She loves animals, humans and if she had her way would be living on a country smallholding (romantic barn included) with a couple of chickens and two Golden Retrievers. Her first book, "Aussie, Actually," captures her heartfelt experiences as a South African migrant living in Australia. Her most recent book, "Bye-bye Bikini," published in August 2018, is a series of frank and humorous columns navigating everyday life from the perspective of a fifty-something former newspaper and magazine journalist.
