    I thoroughly enjoyed reading what will become your book! I was hooked from the first paragraph. The content is not only very interesting but very informative. I found humour in your words but most of all your love of Australia and its fauna and flora shines through.

    Boy, have you got talent Janine! So hope someone soon realises this and lets you in to Ausatralia on a permanent basis!

    Your books are an inspiration to many German speaking people. Just last month, I met two mature-age couples from Switzerland, touring Australia in rented four-wheel drive campervans. They showed me two of your books, masterpieces of information, which inspired them to come to explore Australia. They love the sense of freedom and adventure and plan to stay for at least a year, if their visa allows.
    This adds to the Australian economy and builds goodwill overseas. Your work is not only talented, it is a commercial asset. The Ministers for Trade, Tourism, Immigration should each be begging you to live here!

    Good luck,

    Having met you in Mt Augustus & seeing the voluntary efforts you put into our lovely state, you really would be an amazing asset to this country.
    Your feeling & devotion to collecting details on our flora & fauna is incredible plus your talent in photography is superb and most valuable to our tourism in your books.
    We would be very proud & honoured to call you our neighbour should your stay be granted.

    Janine, I wish you well in your endeavour to gain Australian residency. Jens and your love of this wonderful country and the outback is evident for all to see. We met by chance in the inland Gascoyne in Western Australia at the beautiful Mt Augustus; you were returning from taking some early morning photos and I was struggling with a camera that doesn't have the right lens to do justice to the beauty of the Mount. Being the friendly person that you are, you stopped and said good morning!

    Please someone, if you know anyone who might be able to nominate Janine - put them in touch with her or introduce them to her works. Once you meet her you will know how genuine she is. Her work is exceptional and she has tried all the right channels to move to a country she loves. Heaven knows, she shows more respect for this great country than many I know.

    Janine, don't give up trying!

    Congratulations! Both Tito and I have read your book you gave Don and Tina. We loved it and could relate to so many of your comments on travelling the outback. No fridge also in our 1928 Austin 7, but our sense of humor was always in our back pocket.
    You deserve your Australian residency, with your dedication, talent, photography and knowledge of our beautiful country we live in, and we as Australian's take for granted. It made me feel very humble after reading "How to become a Distinguished Talent in Australia". I have just placed my order with Warren for our copy of your book, we should receive it within the week.
    Congratulations once again.

    Loved your book. Nice to know someone else loves 'the everlasting sameness of the never ending plains.' You can't beat our starry skies! Your story reminds me of my Chinese friend who was chucked out under the White Australia policy, but still used to lecture people in England about how marvellous Australia was. We didn't desrve such loyalty. Although you can find empty places in Europe I always felt there were ghosts from centuries past, but our outback really feels empty. Good Luck. I will cross my fingers for you.

    Just read the excellent book and then the website. So pleased to see you have your happy ending, hope you're thoroughly enjoying it, it's well deserved. I'm ex UK and though metro based share your love of the outback, it's unique.
