In May, I once again had the honour of being a guest of the Sydney Writers' Festival. It was a writerly indulgence from the minute I landed in Sydney... a series of wonderful conversations with readers, writers and old friends. It was exciting, inspiring and incredibly warming. Connecting with readers is the wonderful end product of all those predawn hours when it's just you and the words. I so appreciate it. And the experience of talking to other writers is for me glorious... the feeling is more than collegiate, it's closer to kinship.
