For those who suffer writer envy…
You must read Emma’s story – it is very good and it is in one of the most illustrious of literary journals, Granta.
It’s been a big week for my very clever friends – Sue Orr was named amongst the NZ Post fiction finalists and Rachael King launched her new children’s novel, Red Rocks. And next week, Bianca Zander’s The Girl Below will be published in the United States. So I am feeling very proud and excited on their behalf, and only a tiny bit jealous.
