My book, Eczema and Atopic Dermatits: The Best Websites has recently been published. I've also had many articles published, but I'd like to write more non-fiction books and, of course, a novel!
My articles can be seen at many websites, including Life in Italy, Crescent Blues, Paris Eiffel Tower Newsletter, and France This Way.
There was hope that the beautiful Duchess of Cambridge might wear the Queen's beautiful wattle brooch on her tour here. I don't think that she has worn it yet.
Menzies, the Australian Prime Minister, presented the enchanting brooch to the Queen on her tour here in 1954 after the Commonwealth Banquet. This gift from Australia designed by the jeweller Paul Schneller has 150 yellow and blue white diamonds representing wattle flowers and mimosa and tea-tree leaves. It was then worth about 25,000 pounds. The Queen has worn her beloved brooch on several occasions.
