Grow With Joe Children's Books 

My books and the illustrations are inspired by my daughter’s life on an outback cattle station in Far North Queensland, Australia. 

The Isolation of the cattle station highlights the importance of knowing your surroundings; what you make of what you have. How important it is to make a home inviting, filled with love and happiness. In many cases the animals you bring into your life, and those that just appear out of the blue become your companions and your inspiration. They can make you laugh and make you cry…
