 "Angus and his family are moving to Geelong. Join in the adventure as they discover all the wonderful things to see and do in the Kingdom of Corio Bay and beyond..."

Sally lives in Geelong with her husband and three children. Corio Bay Kingdom is a story about a family who move to Geelong to live. They spend their time exploring and experiencing all the wonderful things on offer in Geelong and surrounds. The boy in the story does not barrack for Geelong and does not want to move to Geelong (he barracks for Collingwood actually!!) However over time, the pull of culture and community overtakes him and he changes teams. This story is based on Sally's son Lachlan, who was a fourth generation Collingwood supporter but then changed teams to The Cats!!

Corio Bay Kingdom is a delightful story written with simplicity and charm and illustrated in vibrant watercolour! Corio Bay Kingdom launched Education Week, in The Barwon South Western Region Of Victoria. Sally was a guest speaker at this event.
