READERS' MAIL: Since Sarah Thornhill was published, many of you have written to me via my agent on this site - so many that I'm overwhelmed and not always able to answer all of your emails individually. I'm very sorry about this as I very much appreciate responses from readers and in the past I've always replied to each one. I'm touched by so much interest in my books, and value the fact that you've taken the time and trouble to contact me. If I'm not able to reply, I apologise. A writer's life can be solitary, and it's wonderful to hear from readers and know that my work is speaking to others. Thank you all!
COVER LINES: I get a lot of requests to do endorsements for books - I've made it a policy not to do them.
THE PLAY OF THE SECRET RIVER: has won 6 awards ( more than any other production) at the 2013 Helpmann Awards. Andrew Bovell and Kate Grenville won the prize for Best New Work. Other awards were:Best Play, Neil Armfield for direction, Colin Moody for Best Supporting Actor, and two awards for Iain Grandage's music.
On this site you'll find information about all my books. There are extracts, reviews and notes for readers' groups. Just click on the book titles on the left to explore.
There's also some general information about myself, and links to some places where you can buy copies of the books.
