Join Hazel as she shares her story of life in Burma with you.

Hazel Barker arrived in Australia from Burma in 1967. She completed her Arts degree at the University of Western Australia. After teaching English and History at various high schools she took early retirement to devote her time to writing.

Hazel’s memoir, Heaven Tempers the Wind: Story of a War Child was shortlisted in the Australia and New Zealand-wide CALEB Competition 2017.

Its sequel The Sides of Heaven was released in March 2018 by Armour Books.

Fear holds her a prisoner. Hope sets her free. She longs for freedom – then she dedicates her newly-won freedom to God!

Hazel’s debut novel, The Chocolate Soldier. The Story of a Conchie was published in 2016 by Rhiza Press.

Her short stories have won in various competitions and have been published in several anthologies.

Hazel’s books will be available for sale at the discounted price of $20 each.
