ADELAIDE author and one-time local Carla Caruso was inspired by the SE when she wrote her new book "Catch of the Day".
Set in Kingston, it features Lucindale in a scene when the heroine Winnie Cherry goes to the SE Field Days.
Ms Caruso has used a bit of creative licence to modify the event slightly to include a cake bake-off and a beauty pageant, which ends in disaster.
Winnie's friend also whips out some Lanolips lip gloss which originates from the town.
The story is a romantic comedy and touches on the local fishing industry, while featuring big attractions such as the Big Lobster and Cape Jaffa Lighthouse.
It follows the life of an up-and-coming fashion editor who, after a regrettable incident at an office party, is banished to coastal SA to set up a beach lifestyle magazine.
Ms Caruso started her career in journalism as a cadet reporter at the Coastal Leader.
She will be at the Kingston Visitor Information Outlet from 11am-1pm on January 11, 2014, to chat to locals and sign books.
Everyone is invited to come along.
