About This Book
My interest in fences was sparked when I was travelling in a road train with my husband who explained that the end of one property and beginning of another could be recognised by a different fencing style. Fascination with gates was partly inspired when I noticed there were references to gates written in the old testament of the Bible (which was written in another country to Australia).  As I was travelling, I saw the aesthetic appeal of some of the fences, gates and posts. I also noticed how varied they were.  From this began over a decade of travelling and collecting photos in the hope of preserving some history and highlighting the importance of fences in rural (and for that matter) urban life.

Book Reviews
[What I liked most about this book is that not only does it contain information on fences, gates and posts, but there are many pictures of the Australian landscape incorporated within the images.  The book is also a useful documentary. This would assist students and immigrants likewise obtain an essential understanding of this country. It was a pleasure working with Sharon launching this historically valuable, informative and well-illustrated book.   Ian Lewis: Director Love of Books Australia-wide]

[Very thorough and detailed historical work. Offers one the opportunity to learn about even little known facts about the formation of the Australian landscape and its history, as well as progression towards its modernization.

About the Author
One of four sisters who spent their childhood on a dairy and cattle farm at Kidaman Creek (Sunshine Coast hinterland Qld), she draws on her wealth of experiences such as fencing, timber falling and cattle handling to add authenticity to the pages and brings them to life as only a rural person can.

Sharon also draws on a variety of rural teaching experiences (governess on remote cattle stations) and travelling in ‘off the beaten track’ places to add colour to the imagery in the book.

Love of Books and Lyndon Sawyer Jones




TESTIMONIAL TO LOVE OF BOOKS: My wife, the bridal designer Rhonda Hemmingway, had written a book called Secrets and Confessions of a Wedding Dress Designer. After checking all the competition we found Love of Books to be easily the most competitive. As the book was a deluxe hardcover A4 sized coffee table style, with 365 pages and more than 250 photographs with a sealed section and silver foiled highlights on the cover, it was very complex to design and print. Not once did the Love of Books team  or Julie McGregor falter to deliver exactly what we wanted with great formatting design ideas, but it was achieved promptly and with good humour. The resulting publication is so impressive that we just received a good order from the biggest retailer of books in Australasia, Dymocks (145+ shops). The book will go into profit next month, recovering all our print and marketing costs. We are thrilled. We will definitely use Love of Books for the reprints (as well as a children’s book we are also working on). I cannot praise Love of Books and Julie too much as they really are very good and highly skilled, which is all the more impressive when you consider their quote was the best we obtained from the 8 publisher’s we approached. http://www.rhondahemmingway.com.au.


Lyndon Sawyer Jones had also invested time with Love of Books staff into the making of his own book on Media Law. Julie McGregor worked overtime and on time with the all the services involved right through to the books delivery. 

Love of Books staff had spent many hours assisting Lyndon Sawyer Jones on his journey of steps with his books. 

Love of Books staff claim Lyndon Sawyer Jones to be a very co-operative, kind and considerate gentleman.

What happened to Julie McGregor - Love of Books

What happened to Julie McGregor - Love of Books

Julie McGregor- One of the best book publishers in Australia worked from her home study originally to then step into a commercial office. Julie McGregor not only published successfully over 1600 authors Australia-wide. Julie McGregor did this with the care factor. Assisting new authors with an easy step by process. Julie McGregor spent time over and above what any normal business would send with each and every author. 

After 8 years in the business that ran successfully for this period, Julie McGregor Directer/owner of Love of Books engaged a consultant who begged her for a job. 

After only almost 2 years the then sales assistant cleverly designed a plan to rob her of her clients and client list as well as other materials from the business.

A greedy company worked underhanded with plans to employ the fired contract worker at least one to two months prior to his sacking. So, her files, clients, client lists were slowly looted into the company. This company then had access to all Julie McGregor's Director/owner's business clients, leads and databases and worked them.

These people, 3 grown men not only showed no remorse or compassion, all three men bullied and harassed Julie McGregor, on and off -line and through her clients in place. Underhanded and deceitful lies and manipulation of her clients in progress took place, in order for her not to have enough funds to pay for an extensive 300,000 litigation suite SHE HAD FILED. 

At the time of the business take over Julie McGregor's family was on its death bed. Julies husband John McGregor received news that he was stricken with an un- diagnosed permanent risk illness and was told that he would not live much longer. 

Julie struggled to renew her business standing over the following 2 years, in line with the government authorities, who assisted her while she was bankrupt, but unfortunately after the death of her supporting husband, who worked in the business also, the death of her beloved mother happened only shortly before the death of her beloved husband John McGregor, the constant bullying and underhanded corruption became too much for her.

Julie McGregor eventually gave all the business items and website to Ian Lewis who runs the perfectly sound step by step setup system Julie McGregor herself designed from his own ABN number. 

To this very day- 4 years on, one of the three men continues to bully and harass Julie McGregor as a paid investment party by the other greedy business and company parties. 

He placed a false claim in to QCAT and won on the basis that Julie did not show up at the QCAT meeting due to her ill health while her family was dying. Julie went bankrupt as she had no intention of paying him, as he lied to the courts and received not only all his books in good order- She gave him 50 extra books for free -he sold 300 of them prior to his false QCAT CLAIM.

Julie was emotionally stricken and could not gather vital paperwork and court evidence efficiently to help her case. SHE WOULD HAVE WON ON A RE HEARING IF SHE DID. AS THIS BULLY ACTUALLY ADVERTISED HE SOLD NEARLY 300 BOOKS ON HIS FACEBOOK PAGE PRIOR TO HIM TAKING HER TO QCAT.. WHAT A LOOSER.

Several clients Julie McGregor was working with, that she had contracts in place with, were interfered with by the bully by the making of deliberate unsound comments. Causing stress and losses to the clients and Julie.

Julie was forced to remove herself from the public eye.

Julie had communication with an overseas investor, who she believed she was helping through the church. She invested some of her own funds, believing she was helping war torn and poverty stricken people. This kept her alive and good spirits during her mourning.

However it was a scam, ONE PLAYING WITH WIDOWS in mourning on-line. Much to her naive nature she suffered the consequences. Pleading guilty and assisting the police in their investigation was her own choice,  as she was too ill to face any trial.

Love Love Love... Love of life, Love of God and of course LOVE OF BOOKS.

Julie McGregor assisted many community organisations volunteering her time such as with this beautiful book hosted by Julia Gillard:

Dean Alan Munro is one person whom Ocean Andrew Reeve took under his wings to harass Julie McGregor to no end for many years. Contracts in place at Julies business she was struggling to bring back up the ladder were forfeited based on the visual of Dean Munro's blogs.  Yes, Dean Munro not only interfered with contracts in place but made other innocent authors suffer in the process.

Dean Alan Munro also lied to a GOVERNMENT QCAT ORGANISATION IN ORDER TO ATTEMPT TO GAIN MONEY FRAUDULENTLY FROM JULIE MCGREGOR.

Love of Books is a strong supporter of several anti-bullying organizations around Australia. 

THE SUN HERALD HAS A LOT TO ANSWER TO - NEWSPAPERS ARE FULL OF GOSSIP AND LIES TO ATTRACT INTEREST AND SIMPLY HURT PEOPLE WITH NO REMORSE SHOWN.

FIRSTLY: MY UNDERSTANDING IS: FIRSTLY YOU NEED A CREDIT CARD FACILITY TO PROCESS ANYONE'S CREDIT CARDS.

SECONDLY JULIE MCGREGOR DID NOT HAVE ANY SUCH FACILITY PRIOR TO OR AFTER AT THE TIME OF THE MENTIONED FRAUD.

THIRDLY: JULIE MCGREGOR DID NOT KNOW ANY OF THE PEOPLE MENTIONED THAT HELD THE CARDS NOR HAD ACCESS TO THEIR CREDIT CARDS.

WHAT WOULD JULIE MCGREGOR DO WITH LIMOS AND THOUSANDS OF FLOWERS? LOL...

Over 1600 published authors world-wide can not be wrong.

And yes, over 1600 satisfied authors Australia -wide were published with kindness and professionally  supported before Julie McGregor was robbed of her business named then as Love of Books Self Publishing.


Dean Alan Munro bullied Julie McGregor, the then present owner of Love of Books for 4 years to date after her business was robbed from her by a sacked employee and a greedy company owner.

Dean Munro put a false claim to QCAT FOR A REFUND of books and a website that he had already had delivered to him. 

Dean Munro claimed the books delivered by Love of Books were faulty and not fit for sale. Yet, he announced on his Facebook Fan Page that he already sold 250 of them and was awaiting the final delivery. LOL...LOL... His books were printed by a well known commercial printer who prints millions of books annually for the Australian Government, all with a replacement on manufacturing fault guarantee. The facts reveal on original visual of Deans books that  there was no manufacturing issues with his delivered books.

DEAN MUNRO LIED TO A QCAT COURT AND NEWS RELATED INTERESTS TO GAIN PUBLICITY AND TO OBTAIN FUNDS BY DECEIT FROM A BUSINESS WOMAN WITH A DYING FAMILY. then continued to bully and harass the woman for a period to date of 4 years. 

And to top it off he actually sold them from the website Love of Books originally created for him. LOL... LOL...

Is this guy for real?

Dean Munro did all this while her family was dying and while her business was ripped from underneath her.

Why did he doe this?  

Dean Munro's constant defamation towards Julie and her business lasting 4 years to the date of this blog left more authors stranded. Clients pulling out after communication with Dean Munro. Julie constantly back peddling finances to pay backwards on refunds. Leading her to eventually give in the towel in October 2016. She did fight long and hard to stay in business and not let the bullies- A GREEDY COMPANY OWNER, SACKED EMPLOYEE AND DEAN MUNRO run her out of business, but unfortunately all the harassment took its toll on her health.

Dean Munro claims in his newly written book he was brought up by 5 stepfathers. All of them had some issues with either drug, gambling, mafia and alcoholic tendencies... As well as BULLYING.

One of the many emails sent to Julie by Dean Munro states:
Pay up or suffer the consequences. If you refuse to pay me money I will slander you to the news and whoever I can and send you bankrupt.  (and so he kept his word)

In actual fact and the eyes of God Julie McGregor did not owe him a red cent. 

IS Dean Munro Breaking The Chains or following the path of his fathers before him? Bullying weak emotional women, just like his fathers before him, blackmailing for money he was not entitled to. No matter what the QCAT decision was QCAT IS A JOKE... Check out their reviews. 10 out of 12 people agree it is a rotten very unfair system.

Imagine been harassed by not one, but three men while your family is on its death bed... After having your business you worked hard on for 8 years many hours a day with  - taken from underneath you! The many thousands of dollars spent on marketing- A client list in place, clients robbed from you. The many thousands of $$$$$ spent in marketing. The many hours spent with your business in many ways.

He mother was dying - her father was in hospital, she just got told her husband was dying. And at the same time she found out her employee was diverting her business and clients as well as client lists and other materials into another company. The bullying and harassment would commence and last 4 years to date.

It was originally sought that the bullying and harassment was organised in order for her to not be able to afford the litigation suite filing that she filed against the sacked employee and the greedy Company owner.  The salesman Julie hired would prove to be ruthless and cunning. Not only taking what he wanted form her business but defaming and turning her clients against her in a lying, manipulating and deceitful fashion.

This perhaps is how gullible and dis-satisfied with his upbringing Dean Munro as influenced.

See this letter from one of Julies poached author below: Names edited pending court appearances.

My name as you can see below, is ................. and I am the author of ................... I am also the first person to part-company with Love of Books, when ......... was fired to establish ..... Publishing, a division of ....... Printing. Back then; I asked Julie for all my electronic files, which she provided; as a result, I have absolutely no issue with Julie McGregor.

I have however, kept up to date with various issues she was experiencing with Fair Trading, Current Affairs, QTAC, News Limited, and ...... to name a few. I advised Julie, that she needs to let your authors know she is not completely at fault, and she is willing to support them, and make efforts to do so.

More importantly, I do not accept what ...... is trying to do to her, how he is using authors to do his dirty work, or how he is treating some of the authors once loyal to him when they are no longer generating an income for him. He is, and I can prove it, not only using authors to achieve his personal vendetta against her, but also truly giving the self-publishing business a bad name.

I am happy to support Julie in any attempts to get justice, but please remember, ...... is very cunning and will use whatever he can to achieve his own [and none else] objectives.

Please accept my issue is  with ....., his unprofessional-ism and what it has cost others and me. Just so there is no misunderstanding, I am wiling to consider supporting any action against .......personally and/or professionally. ...... Printing and many of the authors, as I once was, are only guilty of stupidity; stupidity of believing ......, as I once did.

We can discuss what I know of how ....... orchestrated and is continuing to fuel everything currently happening between you and the authors. How do I know this? Simple; I was one of his closest allies, strategist, and confidant for many months.

Julie, this is a legitimate offer and I await your reply. A written or verbal testimony from me in a courtroom, or to any newspaper, or investigative style TV program, would turn the cards around in your favour very quickly. I have kept contemporaneous notes of every discussion between ....... and I.

We can also discuss how ...... poached authors in preparation much before parting company with Love of Books [I was one of those approached before he was fired] and continued to do so after. Perhaps we could also discuss how he asked each and every author [after the event] to provide him with a statement clearly saying he did not attempt to take them away formal of Books. I believe his actions are, a breach of his duties applicable to a current and/or ex employee, defamatory, unethical, vindictive, and without a doubt unprofessional.
