A small-town girl, Kate, has plans to get herself a one-way ticket to the big apple and purse her dreams of learning all things fashion. Her sheltered life has not prepared her for the whirlwind that is New York City. She has to learn to navigate the hustle and bustle, learn her way around streets, figure out the subway system, manage her fashion classes, oh and try to find an internship. All is going well until she lands herself a man who is a bit bigger of a deal than she bargained for. Her dreams of staying in this fabulous city are slowly crumbling and she is desperate to put the cookie crumbs back together. Kate:Don't look like a tourist. Don't look like a tourist. A few I heart New York t-shirts later, I totally look like a tourist. I can't help it I think as I pull out my massive map of the city. This place is absolutely amazing but holy crap am I lost. My hands are overflowing with bags full of dorm essentials so I make my first attempt at hailing a cab. I throw my hand out and watch a yellow car pull over...I totally got this.A few weeks in and I quickly realize I am in way over my head. This city is practically eating me alive. I keep landing myself into some type of scandal, my internship is at risk, my heart is broken, and my summer in the city is winding down. How will I manage to crawl out of this mess? How will I manage to put all the pieces back together and fix this chaos? It is a total damage control situation and I am starting to think the damage is beyond repair. Will I be packing my bags and heading back to Tennessee or can I manage to extend my life in the city? Please be the latter.

Eleven years ago, Sydney girl-about-town Carla Coulson swapped a corporate job and a cushy life for an old camera, an uncertain future and a way of living that would ignite her soul. She recorded the first part of her journey - her new life in Florence and, later, Paris - in the best-selling books Italian Joy and Paris Tango Early in her new career as a photographer, Carla was advised to 'shoot from the heart'. In this wonderfully diverse collection of photographs, taken in Italy, France, Greece, India and her native Australia, Carla does just that, lovingly recording the people and places she has encountered along the way. Her joie de vivre radiates from every photograph, be it of a weather-beaten Greek fisherman or a Moulin Rouge dancer wearing nothing but a well-placed tie, the sumptuous interior of a Venetian salon or children frolicking on a Sydney beach. Carla moves effortlessly from highly stylised fashion shoots in the grand hotels and palazzo of Europe to real-life shots of factory workers in India. In this highly evocative collection of photographs, Carla records her personal quest to enrich her life. Chasing a Dream will inspire you to seize the day and follow your heart.

"Never doubt yourself, never stop chasing your dreams, and always believe the impossible." -- Carl EnglishWhen Carl English was five years old, he was faced with an unimaginable tragedy. The loss of his parents in a fire would change his life as he knew it. But he found an outlet, a comfort zone, a way out of the emotional turmoil he experienced: basketball. He played, hours upon hours, on the side of the highway, in rain, wind, and even snow. As time passed, basketball grew into a passion, and then a dream. Where would it take him? How big could he dream? And what would he need to make this dream a reality? Hard work, discipline, practice, determination, and most important, self-belief. Basketball has taken Carl all around the world and, in his own words, has blessed him with so much.Chasing a Dream is the memoir of Newfoundland basketball phenom Carl English. It's an inspirational true story of persevering through hard work and dedication to make a dream become reality. In Carl's case, he always dreamed of playing in the National Basketball Association (NBA). Although he went undrafted through all his years playing, he enjoyed the career of a lifetime playing the sport he loves. The basketball pro from small-town Newfoundland travelled overseas and crushed the European basketball circuit. He became a superstar in his own right, by playing in Europe and for the Canadian national team, and returned to his home province to a hero's welcome."Carl English has a story that won't disappoint. Watching his career, I was always drawn to the spark and confidence I could feel through the TV. A hot streak was always right around the corner, and his bravado was magnetic. Beloved by his national team teammates for his sense of humour and quick tongue, everyone's got a 'Carl story.'" -- From the Foreword by NBA All-Star Steve Nash
