To mark World TB Day today, my debut novel, Angorichina, is available free on Smashwords.
Angorichina is set in a tuberculosis sanatorium in South Australia in the early 1930s, a decade before antibiotics were available to treat the disease. The outlook for patients was grim, often carted off miles from home to await their outcome surrounded by strangers.

It's a bloody awful disease which is still prevalent in many parts of the world, and disturbingly showing signs of drug resistance. Let's raise awareness, invest in research, and hope it goes the way of smallpox and polio.
