Bad Decisions and Human Weakness

This is the inspiration board for the coming of age story The Walk Home. A story about bad decisions and human weakness.

The events underpinning The Walk Home are based on specific experiences I have had and behaviours I have seen and heard first hand. I drew these elements together and told the story through the point of view of Jace, a sixteen-year-old teenager, to create a work of fiction.

Melinda Brack is a writer, and author of the new collection of coming of age short stories Don’t Go Near the Water.

A Jill of all trades, Melinda has spent her life skipping from industry-to-industry and job-to-job. She lost count of the number of jobs she’d had at around sixty.   In 2020 she decided to revisit writing and started writing shorts stories about coming of age in the Australian bush during the 1970s.

Melinda has a Bachelor of Arts degree in Professional Writing from Deakin University.
