International Women’s Day in Taree!

Last Thursday, Romantic Suspense author, Helene Young, (Shattered Sky, Wings of Fear) and I caught up at Taree Library for a chat with over 50 locals.

I was fascinated by Helene’s journey as a reader to becoming a writer and falling in love with flying and becoming a pilot along the way.

Amongst other things, we chatted about our early difficulties associated with submitting manuscripts to publishers and the process of bringing an idea to fruition.


And the hands in case you weren't paying attention!

It was great to be part of an event that was celebrating women and their achievements. The Manning Valley Bookstore provided a lovely display of our books. Great Lakes Winery made sure the laughter and talking kept right on flowing to the end of the evening.

Helene, Shelleyrae and me!

The evening was organized by fabulous on-line reviewer Shelleyrae of the Book’d Out blog and Danielle Old from Taree Library.

It was a great night. The crowd was charming, enthusiastic and asked pertinent questions! I’d be up for a visit to Taree again!

Once again, thanks to everyone who came along. It was definitely worth the trip!

** Helene Young, when not writing suspense romance, is a pilot and lives in Cairns. Her third book, Burning Lies, the final Border Watch book, will be released on 2nd July 2012.
