I’ve just done an interesting new Interview about Thrill Seekers with Dr Dawn Barker – child psychiatrist and author of Fractured . After Fractured is released in late February, Dawn will be doing a guest post here about the link between psychosis and recreational drugs, a must read, especially for parents of young teens.
Like me and my friends Favel Parrett, Chris Currie, Monique McDonell, Azra Alagic, Simon Groth and Phillipa Fioretti, Dawn won a place in a Queensland Writers Centre/Hachette manuscript development program, though a couple of years after the rest of us. She was fortunate enough to get a contract and Fractured is the result. I’m really looking forward to reading it. It tells the story of a young woman suffering post-natal depression and the ramifications of that illness. Right up my dark and twisted alley!
