Seventeen-year-old Friday Brown is on the run, trying to escape memories of her mother and the family curse. She befriends Silence, a strange boy with a troubled past. In Murungal Creek, a ghost town in the outback, Friday must face her own past. I wrote Friday Brown very differently to my first novel. Part One — The City, is set in the underbelly of an unnamed but distinctly Australian major city where homeless children are invisible and Part Two — Dust, takes place in Murungal Creek, a crumbling ghost town on the edges of the red heart of Australia.

The themes in Friday Brown came about through the interaction between characters and the momentum of the story. There were ideas that arose as I wrote: What is family? Does character decide destiny? And the duality of human nature—is there good and bad in all of us and is there a seminal point where we have to choose a side?

I wondered, how far could I pare back her character by taking away her mother, her past, her friend and her identity, and to what extremes would she go to find herself? This was such an awkward, messy book to write—much like piecing together a quilt from mismatched pieces of fabric, without a pattern.

But at some point after the first draft was written, I abandoned reason and ran on instinct, which is an interesting parallel between my writing process and the character, Friday Brown. A book by Booki.
