One of the country's finest young cellists, 16 year-old Hugh has a very bright future. A future that has been mapped out by his parents, his teachers, by everybody, it seems, except Hugh.
Hugh has a secret, though: he loves cars and he loves car racing. When his newly discovered grandfather, Poppy, asks him to go on a road trip to Uluru in his 1970 Holden HT Monaro, Hugh decides, for once in his life, to do the unexpected.
Dogleg Bay is one big retirement home; the richest man in town - the funeral director - drives a hotted-up hearse.
Hunter Vettori is thirteen, and longs to catch a record-breaking mulloway, leave Dogleg Bay, and become bigger then Rexy Hunt.
On the way, maybe he'll get to kiss a girl (there's only two to choose from and they're twins), save his mum from getting a really bad tatt and find out if Target really has a section called Christian Smart Casual. But, above all, Hunter wants his father back.
Jetty Rats is a fast, funny, insightful and moving novel that will make you laugh out loud and perhaps want to go fishing!
The Debt (series of 6 books)
Fifteen-year-old Dom Silvagni is cast out of his comfortable life in the Gold Coast's Halcyon Grove when he inherits an ancient family debt to a secret and powerful organisation. He has six Herculean tasks to perform, or he will lose a pound of flesh.
The Lords of Melody
The Lord family live in the worst house on the best street. It might have been different if Suzi Lord's rock n roll parents, Strum and Miss Katy, hadn't stumbled on their way to stardom but after one hit single in Finland, it's been lentils for dinner ever since. Despite all that, Suzi's older sister Janis is desperate to get the money to go on the school trip to France, so she takes matters into her own hands by renting out the spare room on ZedBedZ. But Suzi discovers that the spare room already has an occupant, the ghost of the band's dead drummer whose rhythmic skills might still be required. Life on Melody Street never seems that harmonious, however. There's the broken leg that shatters Suzi's soccer dreams, a friend who needs a new band, a long-lost grandfather, the music mad Chinese student next door and some shady real estate deals going down.
