Here are some old pics I discovered when I was cleaning up my phone. They played a part in some of the setting and action scenes in Friday Brown. They were taken on my father-in-law’s property at Mt Jagged, Fleurieu Peninsula, SA. This was how I imagined the scrub surrounding Murungal Creek, but perhaps a little less green.

After the rains:

My daughter riding her quad along one of the tracks:

This is me, navigating our troopie down Hummer Hill. It’s much steeper than it looks and each time a tyre found a rut my thumbs were just about yanked off (another detail from the book):

I love this place, especially at night sitting around a campfire. My husband and I were married beneath an ancient rivergum on the property, and if you press your ear to it, it has a heartbeat…
