Michael Cathcart and Radio National’s Books & Arts have a lovely section called Top Shelf. In this 10 minute edition I’ve shared a few cherished memories across art, film, music, novels and a Mary Oliver poem http://www.abc.net.au/radionational/programs/booksandarts/top-shelf:-heather-rose/8075752
If you’d like a little insight into what it takes to write a novel, this is an article I wrote on The Museum of Modern Love that appeared today in The Age and also the Sydney Morning Herald. The Age – The Steady Gaze
To anyone who wonders how long novels take to write … well, sometimes they take a very long time. Here is the cover art of my new novel – The Museum of Modern Love – about to be published in Australia September 2016. It’s taken 11 years. I did write 4 other novels in the meantime – but it’s been a lesson in endurance. As the cover suggests, it’s about art – and also marriage. And Marina Abramovic is a character in the novel. I hope you enjoy it.
