BEHIND THE SCENES
Bullies is where I found a place in the story to bring Billy into conflict with the whitefellas. If you remember from “Walkabout”, Billy speared an old man in the leg for running Larry down in his Ute. Well now his son wants revenge and revenge is what Billy gets. But by now we all know not to mess with Billy, as evidenced in “Four Small Stones” with Billy’s brothers, so the twist at the very end will leave you gobsmacked, and then you’ll laugh your guts out. I swear, if you don’t have to pick them up off the floor and shove them back into your belly, I’ll give you your money back :)
Bullies also gave me an opportunity to reveal a lot more about Amber. Wow! What a great little firecracker she’s turned out to be. She’s so much fun to write and I’m loving revealing only snippets of information about her to keep you guessing. If you were intrigued before, Bullies should leave you chomping at the bit for more info about what led to her seeking refuge down a darkened alley in her blood-smeared pink pyjamas.
