Last night, I had the privilege of speaking at the Willoughby Hotel Authors Club.
The pub was buzzing and we had a fantastic room and bar upstairs in which to mingle, sip on a beer and a Malfajiri Cocktail (based on the small African nation in which Defender plays out a lot of the action).
We talked about my writing journey, from when I finished serving in East Timor in 1999, as well as the publishing trajectory I've experienced since 2010. I enjoyed keeping people up-to-date on the latest of what Alex Morgan is up to in Avenger and hearing their reactions to my stories so far.
There was a reading from the latest book, Hunter, which kept us enthralled with the orator's both easy and dramatic style, and I took sharp questions from on-the-ball audience members!
In case you weren't in Willoughby last night, but wanted to see what went down, I've included a series of snaps below.
I appreciated each and every person who came along and asked questions over a beer or two. And there'll be plenty more events to enjoy, if you missed out this time!
