Since my last update there has been a lot of good feedback regarding Seeking The Light, but it’s a real thrill to receive this years Mountain & Adventure Heritage Award from the New Zealand Mountain Film Festival. I’ve been attending the festival and getting inspired since 2004; I’ve even had a few film entries over the years. I’ve also played music with my band on opening night. This year I have the pleasure of receiving this prestigious award AND speaking at the festival!
I’ll be speaking at three different book festivals on the South Island through June and July:
Wanaka/ Southern Lakes: Monday 26th June – New Zealand Mountain Film & Book Festival, Wanaka.
Nelson/ Marlborough: Saturday 22nd July – Marlborough Book Festival, Blenheim.
