Read Write Read

I read, I write and then I read some more. Repeat process.

My words have been heard on TV and seen in newspapers and magazines. My first novel will be published April 2014 by Random House Australia. 

THE WOMEN.

The Women - T. C. Boyle This is such a fascinating story - Frank Lloyd Wright had an extraordinary personal life, but this book just didn't grab me. There are footnotes on every page (it's a novel)and to quote Noel Coward, "footnotes are like making love in an upstairs bedroom and having to go downstairs all the time to answer the door." Exactly.
