I blogged all through September at the NZ Book Month site. Topics included: a diary of a writing day; what we expect from our novelists when it comes to 'the facts'; imagining if the arts were given as much coverage on the nightly news as sport; and finally a week which saw me goingto the Going West Festival, the Prime Minister's awards for literature, and my book being released in the USA. Click the title above to go to the blog.
The Sound of Butterflies was the title of my first novel, published in the UK by Picador, in the US by William Morrow and in New Zealand by Random House, and translated into eight foreign languages. In 2009 my next novel, Magpie Hall, was published in New Zealand by Random House, and in 2012 my first novel for children, Red Rocks. This blog is my thoughts on the world of writing and books.
