Ryan Tanner is an average family man battling alcohol and the demons from his childhood, while struggling as a husband and a father. Drowning in a life that often makes no sense, he turns to an insightful, no-nonsense psychologist as a last resort to try and save his volatile, but altogether beautiful marriage with his beloved wife Tess. Surrounded by Ryan’s drinking, memories of their traumatic childhoods and the gut-wrenching lows of married life, When the Knives Rattle in the Drawer is a cathartic recount about understanding the damage that life can cause and searching for the strength to be the best partner and parent possible.

Set in two different worlds, the story evolves between the couple’s small-town family life and wild, alcohol fuelled nights in the inner suburbs of Sydney. After meeting at 17 years old, they have been married for 23 years and play a simple game: 20 questions, ask anything you want. They explore every aspect of trust, love, fidelity and desire before they go to the club. A club where they enter a world of primal sexual energy, a world where wild things happen.

Jordy Stone was born in a small beachside Australian town on the exquisite New South Wales central coast. While he loves the city and the energy that pours from every corner, he is a country boy at heart and is most at home on an empty beach or a meandering bush track. First and foremost, he is a husband, a father and a lover of the arts. Jordy comes from a family of writers and poets. Storytelling is in his blood. For many years, his creative outlet was song writing and live performance before turning his gaze to writing. Team sport and the game he loves will always be an integral part of his life, along with a good movie and the momentary escape it offers into another world. With his family, he’s most often found on long beach walks or ocean swims where the seeds of each story begin. Side by side with his Labradors, he is a child of the salt water that runs through his veins.
