Elena is desperate. Her husband was supposed to be her Lancelot, the man to rescue her from her cursed life.  But knights in shining armour are hard to come by in twenty-first century Australia.


'I am Captain Plop and my job is to get water wasters to stop!'


Thoughts can be doubtful things

leaving you not wanting to try

when that silly voice in your head says

you'll never make it that high.


'Ahoy Cap'n' said Sandy, First Mate. 'Big Al Gee has found the intake pipe, your journey awaits!'

'Yo ho ho and shiver me timbers! This journey be not for the lily-livered landlubber!...'


"I'm glad you can join me for stage two as we cycle a track where water's reused. This is my aquadynamic bike - hop inside. I'll take you on a very informative ride!'



About the Author

I am a librarian, educator and author. As a child I loved to create stories but, during my teens, a lack of self confidence saw me shy away from writing.

Years later my manager challenged me to write a picture book for a school education program. The result was the Captain Plop series.

It was only after pursuing a number of self-development avenues, I realised that it had been my own thoughts and feelings stopping me from doing, and being, what I really wanted.

It was this experience which led me to write ThinkBeings for children and Peace of the Puzzle for adults.
