Author Chat

The Bundaberg Regional Library started a new initiative on Monday – morning tea with an author – and I was the guinea pig 🙂

At first I thought I was going to be chatting with an audience of two, but people soon trickled in, and when I started talking about the journey of a book, from manuscript to bookshelf, library patrons who’d come in just to borrow a book wandered over and sat down and joined in. It was a great morning, and lovely to meet such interesting readers and writers. One lady bought Fatal Flaw for her daughter and when she said to write “To Gaynor” on it, I had to tell her that there is a character in the book called Gaynor and she’s not the kind of woman you’d want your son to bring home for dinner. She laughed and said it will create some discussion on Christmas morning.

Which makes me curious – have you ever read a character that had the same name as you and you didn’t like him/her? How did you feel about it?

      Hi Suzanne
      Dance with the Devil is now available as an ebook through Amazon Kindle and from the Clan Destine Press website. I wish I had some print copies left for readers. I hope you enjoy reading it.
