Summer Says:

Chicken expert, Summer Farrelly, is featured throughout the book in Summer Says info boxes. When Summer was 9 years old, she wanted to share how her chicken flock helped her understand social cues and situations. Being on the autism spectrum, she at times found social settings both challenging and confusing. Her chicken flock gave her a place to belong, help her build resilience, and accept who she is. Over the past few years she has achieved this and so much more.

Not everyone’s first foray into film earns them a line that becomes a cultural phenomenon. “You’re terrible Muriel” has stamped Gabby Millgate into the Australian national consciousness. Gabby Has been quoted by Madonna, Will Ferrell and James Cordon.

Other regular TV appearances included debates, panel and chat shows. Gabby has performed live in stand-up, cabaret and musicals. She has been the MC for corporate events and community events and festivals. 2006 Radio offered Gabby daily 4am starts, talking to everyone from truck drivers to the Prime Minister.

Whilst living in the Aboriginal community of Roebourne, Gabby also taught in the Correctional Centre. Gabby formed intimate and influential relationships with the Ngarluma & Yindjibandi women during her time in Roebourne. It is here, in the driest, hottest part of Australia, Gabby learnt about chickens, edible gardens and sustainability from one of her listeners who was living off the grid-a wild human. With 20 years improvising under her belt with Sydney Theatresports, Gabby relishes the unexpected and spontaneous.
