Victoria TweadI’m Victoria Twead, the silly old fool who wrote “Chickens, Mules and Two Old Fools”.

Thanks for popping in!  I hope you’ll find your way around easily without tripping over chickens. That’s Lola in the photo, isn’t she gorgeous? She forces me to leave the computer sometimes, which has to be good thing. Thanks, Lola!

There’s a place where you’ll find all my books (have I really written that many?) and a Your Questions section.  

Take a look at my latest book, Dear Fran, Love Dulcie: Life and Death in the Hills and Hollows of Bygone Australia. It was an honour to work on it and Dulcie, the young farmer’s wife, will haunt me forever.

Help yourself to Free Stuff and I hope you enjoy your visit. If you’d like to find out how Joe and I are coping, day by day, do join me on Facebook. And if you’d like free books, recommendations, a recipe, and to know what’s going on in our lives,  I’d love it if you signed up for the Old Fools’ Updates. You can do that at the bottom of every page.
