The Wardrobe Girl @ Blaxland Library
Blaxland Library is inviting everyone to attend an Author Talk with Jennifer Smart
Thursday 29 May, 2014
Hear about Jennifer’s debut novel, The Wardrobe Girl.
“If Bridget Jones lived in Bronte, she’d be called Tess Appleby . . .
After the humiliating end of her last relationship, TV costume designer Tess Appleby finds herself living back at home with her ex-starlet mother and working on Australia’s iconic beach soap, Pretty Beach Rescue.
Sure, a wardrobe assistant on a soap is a step down from her gig at the BBC, but all Tess wants is an easy life . . .
Unfortunately she’s barely arrived on set before she’s warding off the attentions of the show’s heartthrob, Sean Tyler – and, as a consequence, the hostility of its other star, Bree Brenner.
And if the pressures and politics of working on a TV drama aren’t enough, she’s living with her high-maintenance mother and her infuriating sister Emma, an aspiring actress.
Still, Tess is certain she can deal with everything they throw at her – until Jake Freeman, her ex-fiancé, the man she last saw eight years ago as he walked away and broke her heart, is named the show’s new director…
Jennifer Smart has worked for many years in film and television, including five years on the iconic, Australian drama Home and Away as a Director’s Assistant and then scriptwriter. She lives in Sydney.”
