From author Terrence Edward Creek comes an enthralling adventure story that tells of one man’s flight in the Australian outback with his new publication, “Grandma's Cookie Jar.” Readers will follow the journey of Ray Renshaw as he goes through a turning point in his life where he gained a lot of lessons and realizations that he will never forget.

Ray’s Grandma always told him that if he put his hand in the cookie jar, he takes what comes out. Life is like that. He takes what he is given and makes the most of it. Ray tries to practice that philosophy in his travels. The story follows him as he meets many different characters and experiences events along the way. His story chronicles how he attempts to find a different way of life than what he was used to. A plane crash sets up his first adventure as he tries to survive in the bush. Ray also has some good times as a hotel owner and country gentleman. His travels allow him to meet and get to know many different true Aussies. He travels and works throughout the Australian outback with some very exciting and challenging results.

Australia is a whole new different world where interesting people lives and have stories to tell. Creek’s fondness for the life in the outback and the people in the bush provided him the inspiration to weave a vivid and compelling story that has tons of surprises at every turn of the page.

“I hope readers will be able to relate to many of the characters involved and get a perspective of what is essentially the Australian way,” Creek says.

The beauty of his work is that readers cannot easily predict what they will find inside the book based from its title. “Grandma's Cookie Jar” reveals riveting twists and turns that will not only entertain them but will also take them on an unforgettable adventure unlike anything they have experienced before.
