Early Bird Registration is now open for the Historical Novels Society of Australasia virtual conference in October, celebrating historical fiction with panels, interviews, bootcamps, workshops and so much more: lots of interest for both readers and writers of historical fiction. The conference will run over two weekends, and with a star-studded line-up of participants, including the wonderful Geraldine Brooks as the Guest of Honour. So happy to be asked to host a ‘chat room’ in conjunction with award-winning author Isolde Martyn, to talk about medieval fiction, research and writing – really looking forward to that!. For more information, and to make a booking, please go to https://hnsa.org.au/2021-hnsa-conference. Hope to ‘see’ you there!
