Talented Perth writer Emily Sun invited me over to her blog and asked me a series of  excellent questions, which I enjoyed answering. In this chat we talk about being writers of colour, being culturally and linguistically diverse, and why that is a problem/not a problem and how grammar ruined my teenage daughter’s mind. Read the rest of the interview on Emily’s excellent website and be sure to buy a copy of her debut collection of poetry out with Fremantle Press later this year.

And here are a few pictures from a couple of writers festivals I attended in January and February.
