Alcheringa Snow written and illustrated by Toni Cary | HB
When snow comes down in the Snowy Mountains, at Alcheringa it’s a special time for dreaming.
Toni Cary has drawn since early childhood and, throughout her life, has won numerous awards for creative writing. She has penned three books: a handbook for community nurses and carers, a humourous murder mystery about a female middle-aged serial killer that was also adapted for ABC Television as a pilot series, and a book containing thirteen short horror stories about women.
In 2013 she moved to the Snowy Mountains of NSW in order to write and paint full-time. The magnificent surroundings of the NSW high country inspired her to illustrate with pastels, the abundant wildlife that came onto her property every day. With the arrival of grandchildren, she decided to progress to writing her first children’s picture book, depicting the incredible diversity of the unique Australian wildlife mixed with the ruggedly beautiful mountainous terrain around her. Hence, the first book in a four-book series, ‘Alcheringa Snow’ was born.
