The Secret Life of Shirley Sullivan is a charming, nostalgic and heartwarming story for women of any age - and it all begins when 79-year-old Shirley kidnaps her husband from his nursing home for one final adventure . . .
After working for many years as a teacher (and a brief stint as a professional organiser - before Marie Kondo made it cool), Lisa Ireland is now a full-time writer. A few years ago, her husband convinced her to leave their much-loved Melbourne home to take up residence on Victoria's Bellarine Peninsula. Now she can't imagine living anywhere else. When she's not writing, Lisa can be found running (okay, shuffling) along the nearby river track, drinking coffee at her favourite cafes or perusing the shelves of her local bookstore. She loves eating but not cooking, is an Olympic-class coffee drinker, and (most importantly) minion to a rather large dog. The Secret Life of Shirley Sullivan is Lisa's sixth novel.
