Affirm Press will be publishing an anthology later in the year called "It happened in a Holden", and I am honoured to be one of the writers contributing to the book!
It should be a great compilation and I am honoured to be a part of the project
Here is a sneak peak of what I wrote...
"‘Hey, you,’ the portly figure across the road called in my direction.
I looked around, was he talking to me?
‘You, over there!’ He was now pointing at me through the throng of people walking across the road, intermittently blocking my view.
‘Who, me?’ I mouthed, pointing at my chest, bending the vinyl Summernats logo printed on the shirt.
‘Yeh, you! Come over here!’
I hesitated. The man was bald, sporting a biker’s beard and a t-shirt with a naked lady on the front. The market store he was standing next to wasn’t much better, and cheeky sloganed t-shirts were just the beginning. Every piece of Summernats paraphernalia from stubby holders to novelty pens seemed to have found its way into this guy’s tent.
Oh, what the hell, I thought, as I made my way across the road, ignoring every ‘don’t talk to strangers’ lesson ever taught. Weaving in and out of the crowd, I passed a gorgeous Camaro parked by the store, and only just resisted the urge to stroke its bonnet. Control yourself, girl! I reprimanded myself silently. The last 1960s model stirred something in my chest that gave me the jitters. "
What is your favourite Holden?
