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. 

Amber Road - Boyd Anderson



There's only one Gone With the Wind. And that's really the way it should stay. I had a love/hate relationship with this book - it's huge at over 500 pages & it could definitely have done with a solid pruning and it's not a great work of literature, but I still wanted to finish it & find out what happened to the characters, even though if you've read or seen Gone With The Wind it will come as no surprise. And unfortunately, Victoria and Joe just don't have the same charm or illicit the same sympathy as Scarlett and Rhett. But a great idea to set it in this place and time.
