Praise for Walking On Trampolines

Go Brisbane Writers!

After seven years in the making, Frances Whiting, our favourite Brissy columnist, has released her first novel, Walking on Trampolines.

And it’s a keeper.

She’s Australia’s Marian Keyes – both of whom write stories rich with characters you want to take home, and have you laughing and crying (often on the same page).

I had the pleasure of meeting Frances at her book launch and was not surprised when she was as delightful in real life as she is on the page.

Although not officially set in Brisbane, elements were strangely familiar, and made me feel right at home. I love Australian fiction.

All I can say is I hope the second book has a shorter gestation period…

Walking on Trampolines? Straight to the pool-room.

 

 

 

 

Parenting Articles

For all the parents out there who like a dose of reality (instead of unrealistic, eternally heartwarming stories that are commonplace), have a browse of the latest My Child Australia Magazine.

Along with a lot of facts on pregnancy and childbirth, you will find honest accounts of parenting in the naughties in my columns.

I’m no expert. The wheels fall off for me every day at some point.  But I hope that sharing my thoughts on the challenges of family life, might just make a fellow parent feel less alone in the daily grind.
