Happy 2016!

Noosa River at dawnYou know you’re on holidays when you relish the chance to get out of bed at daybreak. With the Noosa River calling, and a paddleboard with my name on it, who has got time to sleep.

Sting rays are flitting across the river bed, pelicans are sailing past, early-rising fishermen head for the bar, and a sea eagle is keeping an eye on proceedings from the top of an old gum as the sun peeps through the clouds.

Noosa North ShoreThe Noosa River inspired my  first adventure series for kids – Hazard River, published five years ago, and I still can’t get enough of the place.

My resolution for 2016: to come here more often!

Hazard River series by JE FisonHappy New Year to you. Hope you’ve got lots of great adventures ahead.
