"Jem's world has been turned upside down--and it's about to get a lot worse. His great-aunt Ella, who's also a solo, round-the-world sailor, is moving in and decides to take Jem, his sister Maddy and his brother Tyler, with her on an adventure across the great blue sea. Plagued by seasickness and left wondering what mystery Ella seems to be chasing across the water, Jem begins having strange and troubling dreams. Could they be linked to the stranger stalking them as they continue on their quest?"--
Ronan's Echo by Joanne Van Os( Book )

2 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 101 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Did we have any relatives die in the First World War?" Forensic Anthropologist Kat Kelso's innocent question begins the unravelling of a hundred years of family history, lies and secrets. In 1916 twin brothers Denny and Connor Ronan are eager to get to the war before it's all over; Bridie O'Malley, their childhood friend and the woman they both love, watches them leave, understanding too late that war is about more than heroes and handsome boys in uniform. Nearly a century on from the disastrous battle of Fromelles, Kat Kelso, Bridie's great granddaughter, is on site in France identifying the recovered bodies of lost Australian soldiers. The discovery of her own relative amongst the dead men brings Kat, her mother Fiona and great-aunt Hattie, far more questions than answers. The wounds of love and war have devastating consequences that ripple across time
Brumby plains by Joanne Van Os( Book )

Sam and George, 13 and 11, live at Brumby Plains, their parents' sprawling buffalo station in the Northern Territory. They're counting down to the Christmas holidays, and anticipating the fun they'll have exploring the property, horse riding, and spending time with their cousins Tess and Darcy. But weird things are happening at Brumby Plains - who is leaving the gates open, and why did a plane land in darkness in a deserted area? A chance encounter with an Englishman who knows more than he's letting on leaves Sam suspicious, but all their worries are forgotten as the four kids find a spooky cave up in the hills. Vincent, their old Aboriginal friend, says they shouldn't go there - he says it's a dangerous place, full of angry spirits. Surely there's no harm in exploring, though - is there?
Castaway : a Brumby Plains adventure by Joanne Van Os( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 51 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brumby Plains is an isolated place, and the outside world doesn't intrude much here. But when Sam and George discover a refugee child washed up on the shores of their buffalo station, the rest of the world is brought a lot closer. An accident has taken Mac and Sarah far away, and Uncle Mungo has strong views about refugees, so the two brothers hide the child while they work out what to do. Sam discovers that it's a lot harder to stand up for what you believe in than to follow the crowd
Outback heart by Joanne Van Os( Book )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Joanne Van Os was 19 when she first met the handsome and charismatic Rod Ansell, later known as 'the original Crocodile Dundee'. At 24, Rod was a legend in Australia and overseas. To Joanne, he was a god, a genuine outback hero. Soon they were married with two small sons, and Joanne was living the tough life of an outback 'bullcatcher' and cattle musterer. Ultimately, however, their marriage broke down, and it was then that Rod's life started to go off the rails. His life was tragically cut short in a shoot-out in which two young policemen were also killed. Containing wonderful colour photographs, Outback Heart is a deeply moving and powerful story that will keep you reading till the last page. Joanne captures the outback life but she also tells a deeply personal story of a love affair and a marriage, and the pain when it all falls apart." -- Publisher

Outback heart by Joanne Van Os( )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Joanne van Os was just twenty-two when she met Rod Ansell. At twenty-three Rod was already a legend in Australia and around the world, having survived alone for two months without supplies in one of the harshest and most remote parts of northern Australia. To Joanne, Rod was a genuine hero who told the funniest yarns and had a philosophy on everything. She married him, and they had two beautiful sons who idolised their father. Together they lived the tough life of outback bull catchers and cattle musterers. But as time went on Joanne came to realise that Rod was both a complicated and deeply troubled man. For the sake of her sons she never gave up on Rod, even after their divorce, but just how far he'd gone only became apparent when his life finally ended in tragedy: out of his mind on drugs, Rod became involved in a shoot-out in which a young police officer was killed. Outback Heart captures the Territory life on paper: the dust, the heat, the struggle and the larger-than-life characters. But it's also a deeply moving and powerful story of a love affair and a marriage, and the pain when it all falls apart
