As part of The National Year of Reading, Jaye Ford, Wendy James and I have been invited to participate in a panel titled "Three Paths to Print" at Toronto Library on Thursday 13 September at 10am. I suspect it will be an extremely interesting session - Jaye and Wendy are both amazing writers, and we'll be discussing our research, writing and publishing journeys, and the diverse paths each of us took to a published work.
The event is free, but pre-booking is required - just phone (02) 4921 0463 to reserve your place. Here's the blurb that the library published in this month's newsletter. If you can make it, please do come up to me afterwards and say hello! Meeting you in person would be awesome and the more readers and writers we get the more interesting the session will be.
Internationally published author Jaye Ford's first book, Beyond Fear, was the highest selling debut crime novel in Australia in 2011. Her latest suspense thriller, Scared Yet? was released this year by Random House. Jaye is a former news and sports journalist and now writes full time.
Novelist and short story writer, Wendy James, writes about women's lives - personal and public. Her fifth book, The Mistake, was released this year. The Mistake is the gripping story of a mother; a missing baby, and the powerful role the media takes in shaping our opinions.
Magdalena Ball is the prize-winning author of fiction, poetry and nonfiction and runs the review site The Compulsive Reader. Her latest book Black Cow is the story of a couple who move to rural Tasmania in a bid to escape from their opulent, yet unhappy, high-life in Sydney.
I hope you can join us!
