Talking Aussie Books with Esther Campion
Esther Campion is an Irish-Australian author of three novels - 'Leaving Ocean Road', 'The House of Second Chances' and most recently 'A Week to Remember'.
Released by Hachette Australia earlier this year, 'A Week to Remember' is a heartwarming story that has the warmth and satisfaction of a Maeve Binchy or Monica McInerney novel. Set between Ireland and Australia, it's a hopeful story about family, love and second chances that will delight readers and have them yearning to travel once more.
I was delighted to have the opportunity to chat with Esther on the podcast recently.
Talking Aussie Books with Jessica Dettmann
Jessica Dettmann is a Sydney-based writer, a blogger and former editor turned novelist.
Earlier this year her second novel "This Has Been Absolutely Lovely" (HarperCollins) was released.
A wonderfully charming multigenerational tale that takes a witty and relatable look at parenthood and families that will have you hooked from start to finish.
I was delighted to have the opportunity to speak with Jessica on the podcast recently.
Talking Aussie Books with Julietta Henderson
'The Funny Thing About Norman Foreman' is Julietta Henderson's debut novel. It's an exquisite, tenderly written novel which slowly draws you in before delivering a well-placed kick in the guts and breaking your heart. A book that stimultaneously fills you with so much joy that you find yourself cheering triumphantly.
Heartwarming, poignant and incredibly funny, too. This book has it all.
I was delighted to speak with Julietta on the podcast not long after her book's release here in Australia.
Talking Aussie Books with Kelli Hawkins
Kelli Hawkins is a Newcastle-based author who landed with an almighty splash onto the Australian literary scene when she signed a rare four-book deal with HarperCollins Australia in September 2020.
Her debut novel, "Other People's Houses" is an emotionally gripping, rollercoaster ride of a story packing a proverbial punch that will leave you stunned! Exploring themes of grief, abuse and the highly-charged real estate scene in Sydney, this is a book that will have you compulsively turning pages.
I was delighted to chat with Kelli about her book recently on the podcast.
Talking Aussie Books with Steve Matthews
Steve Matthews lives on the outskirts of Sydney and is the author of a number of children's books as well as adult fiction.
His latest novel for adults was inspired by true events and has an attention-grabbing, unforgettable title. A story of such incredible courage and survival, it will take your breath away.
Called "Hitler's Brothel" (Big Sky Publishing), this was an emotional and compelling read.
I was delighted to have the chance to speak with Steve recently on the podcast.
Talking Aussie Books with Greg Woodland
Greg Woodland is another fabulous Australian author who comes from a screenwriting and film-making background. His debut novel, "The Night Whistler" (Text Publishing, 2020) is another example of why Australian crime fiction is so hot at the moment. Inspired by an event from Greg's own childhood, this novel is sharp, gritty and compelling. A terrific read!
I was delighted to have the opportunity to speak with Greg on the podcast recently.
