Lynne’s husband wouldn’t stop…

I recently received the following email from Lynne and wanted to share:

Dear Ian

I met you at North Lakes, purchased your book for my husband for Christmas. You warned me he would not put it down. He started reading at about 10:30 yesterday, he just finished!! You were right! 24 hours and he was done.

He tells me it’s a fantastic read with lots of twists. My turn next.

Congratulations. We will be spreading the word. Looking forward to the next book.

All the best for the new year.

Sandy Curtis wins Award for contribution to Queensland writing

My friend and mentor Sandy Curtis was recently presented with a Johnno Award, named after founding QWC patron David Malouf’s novel, Johnno. It is presented annually to an individual or group in recognition of their outstanding contribution to Queensland writers and writing.

Sandy has for many years been a driving force behind encouraging aspiring writers in Queensland, has served on the Qld Writers Centre Committee and established with others the Bundaberg WriteFest, which has become a key event in the Queensland writing calendar.

Sandy has six published books of her own. She was of great assistance to me in the editing process of my first novel, No Remorse. You can view Sandy’s blog here:

Congratulations, Sandy!
