Mowbray Brothers

Saturday night, summer of 1920. Mowbray Park is where the local lads go for a laugh, a beer and a smoke. Eight-year-old Lucky sneaks out of bed to discover his brother and hero has taken a dare that could cost much more than his one shilling bet. 'Mowbray Brothers' is inspired by the author’s father, who liked to tell stories of growing up in the workers’ suburb of East Brisbane in the 1920s.

“Debbie’s writing is so descriptive and vivid. I felt more invested in these characters in the short time I knew them than a lot of characters in full novels.”
