You saw my book "Seagulls on the Ganges" pass by but you don't know if reading it will bring you anything? DO you need it? Are you ready for its message?

Here is a sample of what readers are saying ...

(Debbie from South Australia)
"Ellie’s journey has sparked a decision in me to throw caution to the wind and to break free from my acceptance of having a mediocre life. Instead there is a little voice urging me to take a leap of faith and to declare boldly (even just to myself) that I am heading for an extraordinary life. Like Ellie, I have no clue at all as to how this might unfold, but if I can adopt her strategy and trust the words uttered in my heart rather than listening to the irritating voice that would prefer I stay small, well who knows where life will take me."
(Davina from Victoria)
As Ellie focuses on life without her great love she is soon made aware of influences and coincidences that make her ask is there is more to the life than what she could ever know. As she follows her heart in understanding these coincidences, her life takes on a new and exciting adventure taking her on wondrous and amazing travels, to breath-taking countries and cities. She meets extraordinary characters and introduces us to tantalizing, exotic food. Ellie finds she is stronger than she ever thought capable, and braver than she ever thought possible.

Ellie's transparent account of her journey entranced me with every page.  Ellie is so tuned into hers it is quite incredible. If you have never traveled this book will definitely change your mind. You must read this book. It will change your life forever.
(Kay from Victoria)
I feel as though I about to take wings and fly…. The principle of life that weaves its magical way through Ellie’s story – synchronicity - has become so important to me as well.  Thank you so much Ellie for giving me the courage to stop being a victim of my circumstances. In your favourite Carl Jung’s words: “I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.”
(Dagmar from Victoria)
Talk about synchronicity - our lives are filled with those special moments which create the colorful tapestries which make up our individual experiences. And it's the inner knowing and self awareness which makes it so exciting and helps us to move forward. Ellie has it all. Through her example it becomes a call to awaken what we may have forgotten, to contemplate, to move forward with courage, loving life to the fullest. Totally enjoyable. Thank you! It's been quite a journey for me to accompany Ellie on her life's journey!

Oh Julie. I have just finished your 'Seagulls on the Ganges' while sipping on a fine glass of whisky. I have so enjoyed sharing your journey, it was such an easy read and I can so, so, so see it on the screen. Thank you so much for giving so much of yourself.
(Lisa from Victoria)
There are some books that get under your skin. You feel as if the characters are your friends and there is a sense of loss as you come to the end. Days and even weeks after, you catch yourself thinking about those characters and wondering how they are, what they might be doing… and hoping for a sequel. ‘Seagulls on the Ganges’ was such a book for me.
(Susan from Victoria)
‘Seagulls on the Ganges’ is a tribute which honors such a love: the lovers and the loved. In losing Michael and the tangible and physical aspect of his love; I can only imagine the depth of such pain, loss and heartache. Ellie's' choice to bravely feel the brokenness of her heart allowed her to hear it whispering its wisdom to her. This resulted in her embarking on a journey of self-rediscovery, embracing the cycle of grief as a teacher. An honest, heart--moving and inspirational story where the reader can feel Ellie's tears of grief and can laugh with her awkwardness to embrace new love in Paris.
(Diane from Victoria)
I thoroughly enjoyed every page of ‘Seagulls On the Ganges’. I think Ellie is one of the most wonderful, clever, brave, caring and inspirational people I have ever met, I look forward to more of Ellie's travels along the way, I am sure there is more to inspire us yet.
(Malley from Victoria)
Warning! Do not read this book on an empty stomach. So many delicious descriptions of Mediterranean foods. But do read this book because your heart will be full of belief in love and the magic of life. I found it hard to put down.
(Maureen from UK)
The best book I have ever read
And you, what do you think about it ?
