I was delighted to contribute to this gorgeous little book, full of Australian writers’ and personalities’ letters to their mums. Having read quite a few of the contributions, I can tell you that there are letters to warm your heart and a few that will move you to tears. It’s a great Mother’s Day present, and what’s more, all the royalties go to the Royal Breast Cancer Foundation – so you can treat mum and support a worthy cause at the same time.
Here’s the full blurb:
In this wonderful collection of letters from celebrities to their mothers, Australian sporting stars, musicians, models, cooks and famous authors reveal what they would like to say to their mothers before it’s too late, or would have said if only they’d had the chance.
From Kaz Cooke to Kate Ceberano, Anna Meares to Reg Mombassa, Julie Goodwin to Matt Preston, Di Morrissey to Jessica Watson, Australian personalities celebrate their mothers in a unique and heart-warming way.
Their letters range from the deeply moving to the downright hilarious, from the quirky to the sentimental, but each offers a rare insight into the personal lives of our favourite celebrities and the special relationship they have with their mother.
