It is with great sadness that I pay my regards to the Sweeting Family, for the sudden and unexpected loss of their mother, and grandmother Dot.
Dot was a lover of books, especially those with a Far North Queensland setting and author.
She set up the Local Authors Network to assist authors to distribute books to schools, shops and homes.
I am forever thankful for her help although we never met.
Because of her Magic Fish Dreaming has found many new homes.
She will be sorely missed.
