Me – on the radio – talking about my writing – Sunday 12th August!

Okay everyone… I know it’s very unlike me to post twice in a day, but this one’s important…

Earlier this week, I was thrilled to be interviewed on the radio about my writing, and I’ve just been told that the interview will now be broadcast this Sunday. Squee!

So if you’re near a radio at 10am (Sydney time) this Sunday 12th August, why not listen to me talking about my writing on Radio Northern Beaches (87.7fm or 90.3fm)? You can also listen LIVE via How exciting is that!

Here’s some photos of the interview, so you can have a visual as you listen:

Now, I can’t guarantee that I’m particularly eloquent or as fascinating in the interview as I am in real life (he he!) because I was pretty nervous. But we’ve all got to start somewhere, and this is my first ever radio interview. So please bear with me! At the very least, you’ll get to listen to the first of what I hope will be many radio interviews to come!

Fingers crossed it sounds okay – the interview went so fast I can’t even remember what I said!

  1. Congrats on your first ever radio interview. Very exciting. Glad it went well…

  2. Good on you! Great opportunity – and there’s no doubt, radio sells authors’ work. Certainly that’s true in NZ and I figure it’s got to be the same in Australia!
