The smallest state of Australia, Tasmania is a picturesque island perfect for a drive or walk amongst its lush fields and stunning vistas. However, each excursion always presents a new question, such as what is the sawdust bridge actually made of?, how did the Tasmanian Aboriginal people come to be using glass before white settlers arrived? and is the Tasmanian tiger really extinct?
Philip and Mary Blake run a writing business from their home in Tasmania. Philip is a former winner of an Australian Literary Board Fellowship and a multi-award winning advertising copywriter. Mary, 'the flying librarian', is a freelance librarian and researcher.
