Being in the Shadow:  Stories of the First Time Total Eclipse Experience   



My third book will be launching on June 8th.  Personal stories from ordinary people who were in the right place at the right time to see a total solar eclipse are featured. This is THE book to communicate why you should get into the path of totality for the August 21 2017 total eclipse.  I’m so excited to be launching this book.

The book will be available as a softcover, and ebook in multiple formats, and will be available via Amazon and in book stores and libraries.  Pre-orders will be available very soon.


This book is uplifting, insightful and educational. It beautifully describes the human dimension – the emotionality of the total eclipse experience, and the spiritual element to be found in the natural world. Richard Scott, Slovakia.

Totality:  The Total Solar Eclipse of 2012 in Far North Queensland


I published my second book following the total eclipse within my home community of Far North Queensland. I wanted to collate and share the many exciting stories and pictures people were sending me. This book is a great overview of what it is like for a community to be within the path of totality, and when eclipse day finally arrives. Told through the stories and images of locals and visitors, as well as featuring professional eclipse photography. This makes a great ebook, especially for reading on tablets.Click here for more information.

Total Addiction:  The Life of an Eclipse Chaser 


I absolutely loved researching and writing my first book Total Addiction.  This is more of an academic book that is written for those who would like to understand what eclipse chasing is all about.  The book fully describes the totality experience and goes in-depth into what it is like to be an eclipse chaser. One-of-a-kind, and a must-have for eclipse chasers everywhere.  Click here for more information.
