Hobbiton at Matamata, NZ

I dabble in the world of freelance arts reviewing (primarily for InDaily which is Adelaide’s daily online media outlet) because

a) I can’t say no to free books and tickets, and

b) the folk at InDaily are progressive, independent (a rarity here at Murdoch media monopoly ground zero) and just a darned fine bunch of people.
