Brisbane Writers Festival, podcast, and other bits and pieces

A quick run down on some happenings in my writing world.

Brisbane Writers Festival
BWF cover fullYes, I’m on the program! As a long-time attendee of the event, I’m very excited to be part of the festival this year (between us, it’s one of those things I used to daydream about before I was published…oh okay, since then as well).

I’ll be on a panel with Marjorie M.Liu, Nalini Singh and Teagan Chilcott, discussing why we (readers and writers) like stories with myth, magic and monsters.

The session, called Angels and Demons, is on Sunday 8 September, 11:30am–12:30pm at the State Library.

I’ll post more info on the festival itself in coming days. In the meantime, you can get more info on my session here.

4ZZZ podcast
Zed Bookclub
I had a lovely interview with Amy Stevenson at 4ZZZ earlier in the month, where we chatted about angel mythology, bad boys and twins. It aired on 18 July and you can find the podcast here.

Reviews of the North American edition of Shadows
Shadows is out in the US and Canada on 10 September (not long now!) and recently went out to reviewers. Here are a couple of early reviews that made me smile:

Logan Sci Fi Month – workshop and panel session
I’ve got two events at the always fun Logan Sci Fi Month in August. The first is a workshop, and the second is a panel discussion with fellow writers Trent Jamieson, Kev Webb and Rebecca Timms.
Find our more at on the Events page.

I also had a great time at my recent visit to Angus & Robertson Riverlink (Ipswich). The staff were fantastic (as always) and I met some really lovely readers. You can find more pics at Between the Lines (the new facebook page for Angus & Robertson at Ipswich and Victoria Point ) here.

About Me

I’m the author of the Rephaim series and The Undercurrent.

For my day job, I’m a writer-journalist-professional communicator, where my writing involves a lot less profanity.

I grew up in regional South Australia and now live in the Scenic Rim with my husband and a retired greyhound.

If you’re interested in how I came to land a publishing deal, you can read the short version in this post from August 2011. There’s a longer version (in a guest post) here.
