Brenda Cheers is a novelist living in Brisbane Australia. Raised on a flat and windy farm in rural Victoria, where rain fell 24/7/365 (or so it seemed to her), and where there was no public transport, Brenda soon found that survival from a ‘death by boredom’ lay in books, which she be More...



Janine arrives home unexpectedly one day to find a scene so shocking that it causes her to lose all reason.

She embarks on a road trip across Australia from Brisbane to Broome, indulging in uncharacteristic behaviour that becomes more degrading and dangerous the further she travels.
