Australia's wild places are the settings for love and danger in Ryn Shell’s crime mysteries.
The themes of crime, betrayal, mystery, resilience and love transcend borders.
Thrilling and tragic aspects of Australian history are revealed in the coming-of-age story of Jarrah and Emily and the small inland country town of Fife Springs.
The lagoon named Dreaming Billabong formed when Massacre Creek changed course. It reflects every colour of the Rainbow Serpent that rests in its depth. When the serpent sleeps, ghostly silver plumes of mist rise from the still waters and even life-hardened swagmen swear they hear the ghost.
As with the soil at Tara for Scarlet and her father in the GWTW epic, country and the billabong holds a spiritual significance for Jarrah and Emily.
A ghost may be heard if you pass by that billabong. Parents of lonely and neglected children be warned.
