Demelza is a New Zealand born writer who escaped to Australia late last century where she worked in a nursing home before running off with the gardener. After 25 years of travel (and 25 rented houses) they finally put down roots in Tasmania and now reside in a converted petrol station directly above a convict built tunnel.
In her spare time Demelza raises kids and kale and despite her lack of formal education schools her own children some of whom have successfully left home.
Demelza loves writing poetry, short stories and has now completed her first novel. Some of her work has been published online and can be viewed at http://www.narratorinternational.com/
Death will strike but five times before the final curtain … Lyn, Catherine, Sparrow, ‘Big Bill Norton’ and the other locals of Featherston have at least two things in common: first, their locality, and second, their connection with death. Some of them will make it to the end of the book and others – through natural causes, vengeance or a series of unexplained incidences – will not.
