Melbourne Lord Mayor!

This is the highlight of the journey so far :-)

Dear Mr Oredsson,
Thank you for your book. It is a great read with a unique insight in to the life of a migrant family in Melbourne.
I was particularly pleased when your characters visited Melbourne icons like the Botanic Gardens and the "Cheesestick".
I am not sure about how much of your book is autobiographical but I am glad that you and your family have chosen to settle in Melbourne, it is a truly magnificent place.
Yours sincerely
Robert Doyle
Lord Mayor

“I have now read Blood-Line Incursion, I have to say Congratulations! You made me stay up until 4.00 am in the morning and I should start work at 7.00. I could not stop reading it, I had to find out how it finished.
One can question what the author had experienced and what was fiction…? But that is what a good book is all about and that one can identify with the main character.”
Eddie (Sweden)
