Madelaine Dickie - Thumb

Young author’s debut novel inspired by magic of Indonesia

Creative Writing and Journalism graduate Madelaine Dickie has released her debut novel Troppo.   

It is a story of black magic, big waves and crazy expats, Madelaine said, a story that allowed her to combine her love of travel and her love of writing. 

Although it took Madelaine the best part of a decade to write, she described the process as a “compulsion”, which propelled her through numerous rewrites and juggling the writing process with full time work.
