Pamela chats with Wendy Orr
Wendy Orr is a Canadian-born Australian writer. Her books for children and adults have been published in 27 countries and won awards around the world. Nim’s Island and Nim at Sea have also become feature films, starring Jodie Foster and Abigail Breslin (Nim’s Island) and Bindi Irwin (Return to Nim’s Island.) Her latest book is Dragonfly Song, a novel in free verse and prose of an outcast girl who becomes a bull-leaper in Bronze Age Crete.
Julie chats with Mikki Lish and Kelly Ngai
Australian co-authors Mikki Lish and Kelly Ngai create worlds together, even though they don’t live on the same continent. This means that when they video call each other, it’s not unusual for someone to be in pyjamas.
Mikki has worked with many musicians and actors and now lives in America with her husband, dog and cats.
Kelly lives in Australia with her two sons and loves waking up to the wild story ideas that Mikki has sent during the night.
The House on Hoarder Hill is their second collaboration.
