Cairns Tropical Writers Festival

We have six days to make our way north to Blue Water Marina in time for the Cairns Tropical Writers Festival – I do hope the weather behaves! Check out all the details of the full programme at: CTWF Programme.

The Literary Dinner, starring Madga Szubanski in conversation with Helen Chryssides, is sold out, but there’s still space at most other sessions and a Festival Ticket will give you entry to loads of events without any additional cost. Come along and be inspired!

I’m looking forward to a busy couple days talking writing and books with readers and fellow writers. Saturday afternoon the focus is on romance and I very excited about interviewing good friend and international best selling author, Anna Campbell. The session after that I’m chairing a panel discussion with Anna, Barbara Hannay, Hettie Ashwin and Jacqueline George about romance writing and why it’s the best selling genre on the planet – by a very long way!

Thanks to Roz Pulley for her lovely article in the Cairns Post this morning – I’ve finally made it to ‘Cover Girl’, except I’m no longer in the ‘girl’ category! And I do love Russell’s photos. What a welcome home for us 🙂
