The Best of Intentions (ETA: Nov. 2018)

Kurt is a disillusioned child protection worker in an over-bureaucratised and under-resourced system. When he takes on the case of Gecko, a sixteen-year-old with a traumatic past and a shaky future, he is determined to make a difference. But the best of intentions are not enough.

Set against the background of the devastating 2009 Black Saturday bushfires, The Best of Intentions is a sensitive and compelling portrayal of young people at risk and of the well-meaning but ineffective child protection and mental health professionals charged with their care. In spite of its serious subject matter it is a positive, life-affirming and often humorous story.

“Highly engaging … an intelligent and moving novel” Dr Kate Ryan, Writers Victoria
