I’ve just put the final – truly final – touches to my new manuscript, Close To Home, a feeling at once exhilarating and terrifying. Exhilarating because it marks the end of a year long process of writing, revision and proof reading and terrifying because before too long the novel will be out there in the world for all to see. And read. And judge.

But more about that later.

 

The tagline for Close To Home - scarily appropriate as I come to the end of the process.

Right now I’m excited to be the new tutor for The Year Of The Novel Online run by Queensland Writer’s Centre and developed by the talented and prolific Kim Wilkins aka Kimberley Freeman. I’m a huge fan of Kim’s novels so feel extremely privileged to be participating in this course.

The course allows participants to work from the comfort of home, working on their own novels with the support of an online group and the guidance of an experienced tutor – in this case, moi!

The course starts on March 9. If you think it might be for you, you can find more details here.

Would love to have you onboard.
