What You’re Saying About WDP Books


The Mouth That Roared by Les Twentyman and Robert Hillman

“Les Twentyman is a legend, a true guardian angel in the wilds of western suburbia where so many are forgotten or maligned. Filled with his characteristic humour, wit and knack for telling a good tale, this is a book that should be read by policymakers, politicians and opinion columnists. They might learn something from the Braybrook boy who didn’t finish high school, but who truly understands the heart and humanity behind our most vulnerable and voiceless.”

Alice Pung; author

“Les is a front-line urban lifesaver, rescuing the drowning from their addictions. If you want to know the truth about Australia, and whats gone wrong, ‘The Mouth that Roared’ is a compelling read.”

Chris Smith; 2 GB

“Les Twentyman is one of Australia’s great storytellers. This book is funny, honest and inspirational; it teaches us about character, leadership and community – the essence of Les’s life.”

Paul Kennedy; ABC journalist


Hippy Days, Arabian Nights by Katherine Boland

“Katherine Boland’s motto: “Feel the fear and do it anyway,” perfectly describes her absorbing story of courageous lifestyle choices. Told with exquisitely crafted prose and a whimsical sense of humour, the captivating imagery – which takes you from the uniqueness of the Australian bush to the exoticism of faraway Egypt – will have you wishing you lived in Katherine’s shoes! A gripping story of true love with an admirable resolution. This should be read by many!”

Cheryl Koenig OAM; 2009 N.S.W. Woman of the Year; Author & Motivational Speaker


With Just One Suitcase By Cheryl Koenig

“Our richness as a migrant nation endures through the stories of our forebears, told and retold to new generations. This is one such story among many that make us who we are today”

Tanya Plibersek, Deputy Leader of the Opposition, Shadow Minister for Foreign Affairs & International Development


Crooked Vows by John Watt

“Offered to us as a tale of turmoil in a Catholic soul, John Watt’s novel is also a deeply-felt study of the human struggle for liberty; of the price we might be willing to pay, and why we should”

Robert Hillman, Award winning author with over 60 published works


The Tainted Trial of Farah Jama by Julie Szego

“A compelling story I couldn’t put down”

Goodreads Book Review by Simone Sinna


Blood on my Hands by Craig Jurisevic

“A book that challenged the way I perceived victims of war. A moving story well written”

Goodreads Book Review by Megan Aney


School Days of a Methodist Lady by Jill Sanguinetti

“This frank and searching narrative is in fact a compelling social document. The author demonstrates a remarkable ability to recall the details of her life in the middle of the 20th century in Australia, and to construct from her joys and sorrows a memoir that is warm, thoughtful and inspirational.”

Carmel Bird, fiction and non-fiction writer, leading teacher of fiction and memoir-writing.



The Rugmaker of Mazar-e-Sharif by Najaf Mazari & Robert Hillman

“An antidote to the mindless bigotry I hear regularly in the media and from Australians about this issue. I can only be grateful that someone has had the good sense to make this book required reading for the young people of this country. With any luck this type of literature may slowly bring about a change in the way the general public views the part they can play in the plight of those less fortunate in the world who only ask for a chance in this “lucky country”
