Don first caught the writing bug with Retro Caravans after collecting photos and stories on the newly emerging retro caravan scene. From there he wrote the history of Liteweight Caravans, his family’s company, called A Great Indoors for a Great Outdoors.
Marilyn joined him on his third and fourth books, Retro Boats, and Vintage and Iconic Aircraft, taking the photographs. The aircraft book saw them touring New Zealand in their 1956 Liteweight Kiwi caravan covering 8500 kms.
At the same time, Marilyn wrote and photographed Her Space – She Sheds, Back Rooms, and Kitchen Tables, which features sixty ordinary New Zealand women doing extraordinary crafty, arty and creative things in their special spaces. Vintage and Retro Caravans Downunder, is their first collaboration on writing, and includes both Australian and New Zealand caravans.
Both Don and Marilyn love a good story, and enjoy the challenge of capturing the wonderful people they meet.
