His reminiscences, written during a visit to South America and the U.S.A., are filled with anecdotes of the Sydney political scene of the 1890s and the early years of the new century and are colourfully told.

As a swim coach possessing the gift of inspiration he is without peer, and his line-up of champions - Steve Holland, Tracey Wickham, Jon Sieben, Duncan Armstrong, Julie McDonald - bears gold medal testimony to his qualities.

Lawrence of Australia captures the essence of the man through 24 remarkable stories of sport and its champions. In these deeply personal, funny and very often inspiring tales, Lawrence uncovers profound secrets of success which translate to all walks of life. It is a book for everyone - entertaining, revealing and vastly uplifting.

  • Eunnonia: tough, widowed, loyal and at 83, still a pillar of Savannah society, the matriarch still guiding her brood. Lucille: Nonnie's youngest and prettiest daughter, now an aging Southern belle, ever hungry for male adoration, yet whose secret resentments and unfulfilled yearnings threaten to destroy her charmed life. Cordy: Lucille's restless daughter who had accepted the standards of womanhood with which she was raised; then at 30, and now a mother, she faces a cheating husband she must leave, a career she must build, a self she must find - but will she find it at home, in Savannah? This is not only a story about the bonds of family; it is a story of the struggle for personal freedom; of rebellion and tradition; of reality versus the myths of gentility, kinship, allegiances and love; and the modern issues of marriage, sex and love clashing with the Southern society image of ladies and family.
  • Book IV of The Great South Land Saga. The beautiful valley was lonely and remote and lovely Tilly Martin longed to leave it.

But another woman, as wild and untamed as the land, passionately longed for him too. Before their destinies were decided, the valley would know murder, madness, and disgrace...a young girl born to ill-repute would get a new chance at life...and a proud settler would be humbled by the man he despised.
