The Jerome Cardinal private investigator series A former federal police officer, Jerome Cardinal is toiling away in the sometime exciting but often dull world of private investigations.

The latest addition to the Australian crime and mystery thriller series, fans of Cliff Hardy and Jack Irish will appreciate Jerome Cardinal as the newest upstart in the Australian private detective fiction world.
Quirky Girl's TEN POINT PLAN for a HEALTHY LIFESTYLE EVERY PERSON IS DIFFERENT EVERYONE STARTS FROM WHERE THEY ARE NOW YOUR LIFESTYLE CHANGES ARE TAILORED PERSONALLY FOR YOU The biggest challenge with most conventional 'diets' is boredom. The same old boring 'diet' foods - always feeling on the edge of hunger - can't eat this - shouldn't eat that. Not allowed to drink alcohol - red wine is more fattening than white wine - beer is full of calories - dry cider is better for you than sweet cider. Says who? Not me. We've heard it all before - it didn't work then and it never will work. No food or drink is banned on the Ten Point Plan. You learn to eat the food you love in the quantities that suit the person you wish to become. If you eat properly balanced meals which suit the lifestyle you live, you will never feel hungry and resort to 'yo-yo' dieting of bingeing and starving. BELIEVE IN YURSELF.
