I’m so looking forward to Perth Writers Week. First event: a breakfast with Fremantle Press authors and staff, we authors pitching our books to publishers, libraries, bookshops and eager readers in general. You’ll find us at the UWA boatshed.
I’m also thrilled to be sharing a panel with my friend Gail Jones, one of Australia’s most acclaimed and gifted novelists, along with the comedian Greg Fleet. We’ll be discussing style, substance and humour with the wonderful moderator Laurie Steed. Sunday 24th Feb, from 3-3:45, at the amphitheatre at UWA.
I’ll be talking to the wonderfully smart and keen readers at the Karakatta Club about my debut novel The Art of Persuasion. I spoke to them a couple of years ago about the short story, and was delighted to have interesting response, and conversations over lunch with women who’d lead challenging and interesting lives.
