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.
