Show-bags carries appeal to people of all ages who enjoy fun of the fair, but like fast moving stories with snatches of solid true to life humour.
This Australian is an up and coming asset to our entertainment scene by frequenting shows and fairs. It was here she gathered information for her latest book "Show-bags" an exciting story unfolding in 20 chapters; to lay bare the sorrows or humour of real people."
