Welcome to Tracey Farren’s Blog

tracey-cropped1.JPGWelcome to my blog.

My first novel, Whiplash (Modjaji Books) has just been published by Modjaji Books. It was inspired by the feisty street workers I met during my journalistic research. I was fascinated by the horror of their daily lives, and the audacious courage that it takes to confront it. The main character, ‘Tess’ was born of my deep curiosity and their indomitable spirit.

I have started a second novel called Snake in the Grass. It is a psychological thriller about a little farm girl who watches a charming stanger destroy her family. She is the only one who cans stop him!

See you around on BOOK SA!

    Hi Tracey - Welcome and good luck with the launch. I hope Colleen has come up with a suitable venue at the CTBF. Or has she decided to go ahead with the dreaded toilet reading?

    Modjaji has a place on the "floor" of the CT Book Fair, but one way or another, we were going to be at the Book Fair. So no - although I liked idea of the reading in the toilet, we are having a 'respectable discussion' and we will have a stand in the Small Publisher's Pavilion.

    I'm delighted to see you here too Tracey!

    What wonderful coverage of your novel and of Modjadji over the past weekend -- congratulations! Each extract I read is gripping. Well done.

    Hey Tracey, saw your mom last week while we were down and she told me about Whiplash (as always Severin and I are the last to know any thing about the family), congrats, needless to say I've got the book and now that I'm back home will start reading. Genevieve
