Jacaranda Avenue, a collection of 30 previously published non-fiction stories, was self-published in 2003. The Age said of Jacaranda Avenue: ‘Maskell is no cappuccino columnist, easily excited by his own navel fluff: rather his preoccupation is with the domestic details that inform the spirit: the meaning of a corrugated-iron water tank, the secret message in the static of a transistor radio.  And while suburbia is usually synonymous with the banal, Maskell describes the fluidity of our lives within those safe streets..’

Jacaranda Avenue had a small print run of 400.
