Illustrator: Craig Smith (Working Title Press)

Sister Madge’s Book of Nuns started as a practical joke on a publisher in Adelaide. For reasons too ridiculous to explain, I pretended I was a nun and submitted various nun verses to Jane Covernton, who used to run Omnibus Books. I used a different address and I called myself Sister Madge Mappin. Jane was fooled for a while. – Doug MacLeod
