A Poem for Sally

The Fourth Story from the Otto Bin Empire



The fourth short story in Judy Nunn's Otto Bin Empire series is a heartfelt tale of love, tragedy and the universal need to belong.

Down by the docks the homeless men and women who call themselves the ‘Otto Bin Empire’ gather together for companionship and support.
But a recent newcomer always keeps himself to himself. Reginald, it turns out, is a poet and he simply wants to observe.

Only two members of the ‘Empire’ dare to approach him: a vivacious teenage runaway named Sally, and the scruffy stray kelpie that hangs around the bins.

Both the young woman and the dog are about to inspire Reginald’s life and work - in more ways than he ever imagined …

Also includes an extract from Judy Nunn’s new bestseller, Showtime!

About the author

Judy Nunn

Judy Nunn’s career has been long, illustrious and multifaceted. After combining her internationally successful acting career with scriptwriting for television and radio, Judy decided in the 90s to turn her hand to prose.

Her first three novels, The Glitter Game, Centre Stage and Araluen, set respectively in the worlds of television, theatre and film, became instant bestsellers, and the rest is history, quite literally in fact. She has since developed a love of writing Australian historically-based fiction and her fame as a novelist has spread rapidly throughout Europe where she is published in English, German, French, Dutch, Czech and Spanish.

Her subsequent bestsellers, Kal, Beneath the Southern Cross, Territory, Pacific, Heritage, Floodtide, Maralinga,Tiger Men,Elianne, Spirits of the Ghan, Sanctuary and Khaki Town confirmed Judy’s position as one of Australia’s leading fiction writers. She has now sold over one million books in Australia alone.

In 2015 Judy was made a Member of the Order of Australia for her "significant service to the performing arts as a scriptwriter and actor of stage and screen, and to literature as an author".
