Fragments Journeys To Connection

Fragments: Journeys from Isolation to connection

Isolated and alone, eight high school students with seemingly nothing in common are tasked with a creative exploration of their mental health and wellbeing. A task that will make them question who they are and how they can find their way back …. to themselves and each other. 

The 2nd edition (2022). Updated and expanded content. Printed in narrative format (young adult fiction with illustrations/graphics). Please click HERE for Teacher Notes or click below to order.

Fragments The Book - A Journey From Isolation To Connection

Fragments: Journeys from Isolation to connection

Eight young people navigating high school and beyond, each struggling to hold on – to family, to friends, to a piece of themselves. Every single day they, and others, are working hard to keep it together. So hard, they don’t see their friends are struggling too.

The original edition (2021). Printed in play format. Cross-disciplinary study guide included at back of book. Ideal for school use. 

Fragments The Play

Fragments The Play

“I feel like I’m a piece, a fragment that’s missing all the good buts but I don’t know where to find the rest … the parts I need to work properly. I bet they wouldn’t fit anyway.”

Lexy, “Roller Coaster” // Fragments


Fragments enjoyed a sellout debut season at The Street Theatre in Canberra in October 2019, programmed for Mental Health Month. 

Fragments – The Journey

Life is not black and white, and it’s not always full colour either.

Much of our lives is spent in the murky grey area, where smiles can mask despair and isolation.

That’s one of the many reasons I wrote Fragments.

Fragments invites a conversation, not a one-off, tick the box kind of talk but an ongoing dialogue that creates connection and meaning … for all of us.
