I thought this was a writer’s blog.

Well, hello to you too and thank you for dropping by.

Let me tell you a short story behind Riverside Peace and why I named it so. Yes, it is the official website of Australian author Chrissy Siggee but it’s the whole me.

At the time of creating my blog my husband and I lived and previously lived not far from a river. The closest river from our new home now is still just a short drive away but there are quite a few rivers really. Rivers have always inspired my writing and I’ve spent hours taking in the solitude at a river side and photographing the source of my inspirations. Not only do we have a river close by but there are numerous beaches, country drives, a zoo and the Koala Hospital – all to inspire any writer or photographer. With the Covid-19 restrictions and closures, I can only work with archived photos.

Gardening has always been a relaxing hobby and has always inspired my writing and my prayer life. Let me leave you with a favourite song of mine.
