Step into the world of Sun, Sand & Self-Doubt, a captivating comic detailing one unforgettable day in an otherwise typical Australian summer.

Siblings Trudy and Sam are holidaying with their parents at a beachside shack, where the sea breeze carries the promise of idle pleasures such as skipping stones, rockpooling for crabs and sailing makeshift toy boats. The days stretch out endlessly and childhood is free of obligations.

But while confident, adventurous Sam revels in the freedom of the beach, his younger sister Trudy is haunted by insecurities. Her inner turmoil casts shadows that no amount of sun can chase away… until an unexpected moment changes her life forever.

Sun, Sand & Self-Doubt is a must-read for anyone seeking a heartfelt, vibrantly illustrated experience. It’s not merely a nostalgic paean to Australian childhoods; it’s a poignant exploration of resilience, growth and the enduring power of familial bonds.

Join Trudy on her journey of self-discovery in this coastal tale that captures the essence of sun-soaked days, the ebb and flow of the tide, and the profound beauty of a transformative summer.
