Event description

Description

You will be surprised what facts are needed in fiction, the research required to meet reader expectations and the consequences of getting it wrong! Jaye Ford talks with Amanda Hampson (Sixty Summers) and Ned Kelly Award-winning author Wendy James (The Accusation) on the very different research required for their new books.

In researching Sixty Summers, Amanda embarked on a European trip retracing her own youthful journey from the 1970s! Wendy James’ suspense thriller, The Accusation, is a powerful exploration of the fragility of trust and the lure of the mob.
