Welcome to the website of Australian author Myfanwy Jones
Parlour Games for Modern Families
WINNER of the Book of the Year for Older Children in the 2010 Australian Book Industry Awards. Yey!

‘A great way to occupy nephews and nanna without resorting to Bourbon or horror movies.’
The Rainy Season
SHORT-LISTED for the 2009 Melbourne Prize for Literature Best Writing Award for a work of ‘outstanding clarity, originality and creativity by a Victorian writer, 40 years or under’.
‘The Rainy Season is successful on many levels. Primarily, it’s the story of a young woman coming to terms with her feelings of rejection and gaining a sense of herself; but it’s also a vivid picture of expatriate life, the exuberance and recklessness of youth, a tortured country coming to terms with change, and the agony of the once-young fighters who were largely reviled or unacknowledged when they got home. Finally, it is a vibrant description of a lively, chaotic and contradictory city and culture. A wonderful achievement.’
