I’m available for author talks at your library, writing group or writers’ centre. I’m happy to discuss ‘The Sisters’ Song’ or talk about writing in general.
If you’d like to book a speaking engagement, please let me know via the CONTACT page.
Due to the preparation involved, I do charge a fee for these engagements.
I’d love to visit your book club to discuss ‘The Sisters’ Song’ and its inspirations, themes and development.
If you’re within the Perth metropolitan area, I can visit in person, and for anywhere else in Australia, we could arrange a meeting via Skype.
If you’d like to book a date and time, please contact me via this link.
By the way, there’s no charge for book clubs, given everyone’s bought a copy of my book.
