You can read into the title of this book anything you wish. Some of my coastal friends on Magnetic Island, North Queensland, and some folks in our little town of Ravenshoe in far North Queensland—anything north of Townsville is far—have, without reading my poetic yarns, jumped to their own conclusions.

Some say, Youve written about our wet tropics and rainforest. Others say its about our Big Wet, a nice mild term for our cyclone season. Yet others have truly mucky minds.
What I will say, is that The Wet Patch along with all of the other humorous poems in this little book are true stories.

The book is scattered with North Queensland colloquialisms. The characters, even those with silly names, are real people. Dave, who features in my poems, is my husband, David.

Hope you enjoy the book as much as I did living it.

Born in Birmingham, England, Linda immigrated to Australia with her parents and four sisters in 1966, finally settling in Townsville with her journalist husband and son, Ben. Her husband passed away at an early age.

Linda married her husband, David, another journalist and typical North Queenslander in 1994. She divides her time between their Ravenshoe farm and beach houses in Cardwell and Magnetic Island, where most of her poetic yarns were born. Writing about real people and true events, Linda has written humorous poetry for most of her life and finds humour in the ordinary.
