‘Everything a Debut Novelist Needs to Know’ – an evening talk on Monday Nov 20th.

The last time I visited the Writers Centre Melbourne my class sold out in 30 mins – the fastest in their 10 year history.

I hope to visit my good friend, Australian author Cate Kennedy, while I’m there and maybe visit Adelaide or Perth. I’ll keep you posted on any new details.
