Tom is a former soldier with an awful injury who lives with his mum. When she needs an operation, he finds himself in a care home. It is the beginning of spring—the fighting season in Afghanistan. But, to beat the soul-eating boredom of his days, help him forget his medical issues and to please his mother (and keep his psychologist off his back), he starts a journal. He contrasts spring in two hemispheres; both of which have shaped his life. As summer nears, his mood lifts, especially when a fresh spring visits him. Tom’s Season Trifecta is a tale where childhood memories and a sense of family—even if that family is a little unknitted—can provide comfort when dealing with adversity. It is also a story that reminds us of the value of racial and religious acceptance and friendship. Ultimately, it is a story which acknowledges that hope is often what propels us forward.

About the Author
Cat is a Bachelor of Arts student at Edith Cowan University who also labours in the medical field. She grew up in a suburb snubbed by snobs in Perth, Western Australia, where stories hid behind flywire doors and bodies sometimes turned up in gum-scented scrub. Cat tends to write about injustices or pure bad luck but likes to leave her readers with a sense of hope. She enjoys the contradictions within people, the stereotypical derailed—or enriched—by the atypical, and her characters are inspired by her multilayered, predictably unpredictable and always well-loved family members.
