 Check out the fab festive display of my books at my local Grill’d in Clarkson - love these guys ❤️  Got to love spring/Perth wildflower season. #naturedoesntneedafilter  This book is superb! If you haven’t found it and you love thought-provoking, feminist dystopian fiction, I recommend you put it on the top of your pile! (And it has a sequel - so now I have another book to look forward to.) #bookoftheunnamedmidwife #topread #dystopia
 Remembrance Day, St George’s Cathedral Perth #lestweforget  What a privilege to be in conversation with Liane Moriarty last night. Her new book Nine Perfect Strangers is brilliant, and in person Liane was warm, funny and inspiring. Thanks to @dymocksjoondalup and Joondalup library @city_of_joondalup for a fantastic evening. #nineperfectstrangers #books #author #lianemoriarty  Great fun last night watching Andy and Terry! My daughter got to be part of the silly hat parade, and joined in the marshmallow mosh pit, when A&T batted out marshmallows to a crowd of ecstatic children!
 This beautiful book is out today! In 1906, Kathleen O’Connor left conservative Perth, where her famous father’s life had ended in tragedy. She had her sights set on a career in thrilling, bohemian Paris. More than a century later, novelist Amanda Curtin faces her own questions, of life and of art, as she embarks on a journey in Kate’s footsteps. Part biography, part travel narrative, this is the story of an artist in a foreign land who, with limited resources and despite the impacts of war and loss, worked and exhibited in Paris for over forty years. Kate’s distinctive figure paintings, portraits and still lifes, highly prized today, form an inseparable part of the telling. Congratulations Amanda Curtin @amandalookingupdown - I can’t wait to read it and know it will be exquisite.  How lucky am I? In just one week I’ll be hosting a conversation with Liane Moriarty about her superb new novel Nine Perfect Strangers at the @dymocksjoondalup / Joondalup library event. I can’t wait to find out more about this wonderful book. #nineperfectstrangers  I’m just a little bit excited about The Hidden Hours being on the Davitt Awards ‘Adult crime novel’ shortlist this year! Congratulations to everyone on the list! And I have a couple of other exciting things to share over the next week or two, and one concerns a brand new book. #hiddenhours #davitt #youdontknowme2019
 It’s silkworm time again in our household - it’s becoming a tradition! Here are our biggest and smallest together plus some pictures taken with a microscope camera of our tiny ones and the hatched/unhatched eggs. Who knew worms could be so fascinating. My Miss5 thinks so too which is why I have had to rescue a few from her dolls house. #wormlife #silkworms #natureisamazing  I can’t imagine what it would have been like to write a novel on one of these! Who had a typewriter as a kid? I loved mine but I don’t think I wrote more than a page using it. Picture from a beautiful little museum in Mount Flora, WA.  Happy Easter! If you live my way and fancy an Easter treat then Grill’d at Ocean Keys (Mindarie/Clarkson), who make the best burgers in town, are currently running a promotion where you can win one of my books! #booksandburgers
 Loving the Perth city sunrise before I start my morning of editing.  Snuck off to the Swan Valley for father’s day breakfast and this is my view. Over in the distance, my hubby and kids appear to be having boat issues but there’s no distress flare yet so I’m making the most of the peace!  Congratulations to @natashalesterauthor on the publication of The Paris Seamstress - if you are looking for a great Easter Read then this is it my friends. You will laugh and cry and be transported. #parisseamstress
 We have had Aqua Dragons before but never managed to complete the life cycle. However all those tiny white smudges in the water are babies, on the left is a female full of eggs and the two in the middle look to be mating. This tank is about to get very full!  Great afternoon at Armadale Writers festival, talking crime fiction with David Whish-Wilson, Felicity Young and Toni Buti. Now it’s straight back to the editing cave for me - can’t wait to emerge!  It’s my birthday today  and I couldn’t have wished for a better present than to hear that The Hidden Hours has gone into another reprint and is now deemed a bestseller! A huge, heartfelt thank you to all of you for reading my books and making this possible
