Celeste, Nick and the Magical Tea Party

Joelie first used her degree to start her own retail business but always knew her life's ambition was something totally different. Joelie aspires to enlighten the modern world with lost tales and practices from the past. This has come to fruition in her first book - an adventure story for children entitled Celeste, Nick and the Magical Tea Party.


Norfolk Island. History. People. Environment. Language

It traces the history of the Bounty mutineers from their initial south sea 'paradise' through the rapid descent into a murderous hell on Pitcairn Island, followed by a deeply religious period and then relocation to the 'near-paradise' of Norfolk Island. The book concentrates on the lives and culture of Norfolk's inhabitants today, but demonstrates how much their ancestors' extraordinary past still plays a dominant role in the daily life of their descendants.
