Shirley Eldridge’s previous literary works include Twenty-Four Seven and its sequel, Georgie-Girl which fictionalise her counselling experiences after working many years with Lifeline in counselling and suicide intervention training.

Prior to that Shirley authored The Rocky Girl under her maiden name of Macaree. The Rocky Girl is set in Rockhampton and chronicles life in Queensland in the 1950s and '60s. It is the forerunner to Mima, Shirley's fourth and most important work.
