Dateline: Sydney. Thursday April 01, 2010 For many people, it is the day before a 4 day long weekend because of Easter. However, for a group of Sydney women doing extraordinary jobs, it is a regular day. A Moment In Time follows these women as they go about their work in traditional male roles. The women are all aiming to do the best that they can to get through each day regardless of what Sydney throws at them. Their aim is to be able to go home at the end of their shift, alive. Most people take for granted that they will go home alive at the end of the day. But for these women, lots of training, teamwork, dedication and a little bit of luck is needed. Written by Eric Brook (aka Erk from Channel Erk Podcasts), this is his first novel. You might know him better from the online world and podcasting. This book is partly based on his experiences working on the Sydney railway system, as a volunteer in an Emergency Service organisation and as a life long Sydney resident. The book is entirely set on Thursday 01 April 2010. Following each character through the city of Sydney, incidents and their lives interconnect through the story. A Moment In Time was almost entirely written on an iPhone using an application called My Writing Nook.
