Authors » Joy Lefroy
Joy Lefroy is passionate about our local stories. When she discovered West Australia last century, she found there were many stories to rival the ones she’d grown up with in UK – and many myths too. The Pipeline CY O’Connor Built and The Catalpa Escape are two of the stories she believes should be accurately passed on to the next generation. Joy and her husband Mike live in South Fremantle.
