Write On Radio Show today

It's Write On Radio Show day and the show I produce and host for the Otago Southland Branch of the NZSA airs on Otago Access Radio today (Wednesday) from noon till 1.00pm. They live stream from their website if you're not blessed enough to be living in Dunedin.


Helen Lowe is a Christchurch based, award winning writer of Fantasy Fiction. Her first novel Thornspell won the Julius Vogel Award. Her latest novel is The Gathering of the Lost, the second in The Wall of Night series. We’ll talk about fantasy fiction, and also the challenges of being a writer in Christchurch during the earthquakes.








Liz Williams brought us an insiders view of life as a small woman in the New Zealand Police with her first book Does This Make my Gun Look Big? She has now followed this up with Five Foot and Fearless, which tells of her selection, training and duties in the Armed Offenders Squad.

It was so very nice to meet you (in reality) over the weekend at the Masterton archives and John and I both really enjoyed your session - your ebullience and joy was very infectious and you re-lit the literary flame for me - your absolute delight at being a writer was highly motivating - huge congratulations on your FIVE books.

Vanda - it was so nice to meet you (outside of the virtual world) and both John and I thoroughly enjoyed your session at the Masterton Archives - your gorgeous ebullience and joy at being a writer, has re-lit some of my own fading flame a little - I love your absolute delight in being a writer, not to mention the FIVE books achievement - huge congratulations and WOW - yes, I'm so impressed. It's always interesting to hear about a writer's journey to being published and yours is a great story.
