We met through the Australia (or rather world)-shrinking device of Twitter; I was drawn to her beautiful photography and she was drawn by my… Well actually I’m not sure. I don’t…

Guest blog: Karly Lane, North Star

Karly Lane has been on my radar since Red Dust was published. She popped up on my Facebook page periodically and I’ve watched as she’s sold her books to E-publishers. It was obviously only a matter of time before she was picked up by a mainstream publisher… Which she now has! Allen and Unwin are…
