Visiting author Jennifer Smart told the launch audience her book The Wardrobe Girl is set behind the scenes of a television soap with her main character’s life mirroring that of a soap opera. Jennifer’s work as a Director’s Assistant on the television show Home and Away and then scriptwriter, was used as inspiration for her debut novel.
Set among Sydney’s beaches and eastern suburbs, The Wardrobe Girl offers a fascinating backstage look at the Australian TV and film industry – think Bridget Jones lands of the set of Home and Away – and is a laugh-out-loud read. Jennifer is now working on the sequel. Thank you Jennifer for a great insight into television production and to our great audience who asked lots of questions.
