Well I have just finished reading Denise’s book of Memoirs. Such a great read. The first chapter had me laughing with tears in my eyes! As did the rest of the book. So funny. I could relate to many stories in this book. As I said before there was so much I didn’t know about a family I thought I knew so well. Such a colourful life they led. Mr Crooks had a go at everything and Denise was definitely a Loveable Larrikin! Loved all the stories about my friend Annette too. Good on you Denise. We all Denise’s treat yourselves! You can contact Denise on messenger to get yourself a copy.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. What a light-hearted, humorous and beautifully portrayed account of your early years! I laughed at a number of stories and loved getting an insight into your childhood and young adult years. A very well written account of your memoirs! I wish you all the best with this book

Who’s Billy is a delightful book from start to finish! It is full of anecdotes that give you a glimpse into the memories of a cheeky, fun loving woman who has lived a life filled with humour and commitment. I would recommend it to anyone who wishes to put a smile into their day.

Clever, cheeky and fun. A delight to read about places I have been, and some I haven’t, during a time in Australia when life was simpler and friends were lifelong. An irreverent account of army life from the inside with Denise showing her mettle and determination to make it there, and in life, on her terms. A book to makes you smile, and laugh out loud.

I received your book today in the mail, I started reading and feel like you are sitting in my lounge with me loving it.
So pleased to say I loved this book. Thanks for the laughter, Denise Crooks. I feel like I know you

This morning I received the book “Who’s Billy?” from Denise Crooks and I must say that once I started well I couldn’t put it down. What an amazing life story, plus your Regular Army memories brings back so many experiences that I’m sure a few of us can relate to ourselves as I know I could. It’s a great read and well done, Denise.
