Enjoy Margot Finke’s Taconi & Claude, a coming of age story set in the Aussie outback of 1950. Taconi, an aboriginal boy, has a problem Dad and fears his upcoming man ceremony. A chatty cockatoo named Claude offers snappy one-liners, and Dreamtime Spirits also have plans for him, as does the cattle station owner. Decisions, fears, and the hunt for wild meat soon bring scary and dangerous confrontations.
Margot knows the country and the people she writes about, having been born and raised in Australia. She’s settled in the US now, and is busy writing and promoting her books – both print and e-books. Check out her other publications at either her website or at her publisher’s webpage – Guardian Angel Books.
