India talk

2018 is off to an exciting start for me, I have been invited to speak at two conferences in India in January and February: the 4th JGU International Literary Conference at O. P. Jindal Global University, near Delhi, and the International Conference on Commonwealth Literature, at Osmania University, Hyderabad, one of the oldest universities in the country.
It is a fantastic opportunity to meet some of India’s leading literary academics, and writers and to talk about my own writings, and read from Meridian, my last collection of short stories. This will be my first trip to India, something I have put off far too long.

Being interviewed about On the Run on by Shirley Lewis on Katoomba Radio’s The GLOBAL TV Show, RBN 89.1 FM.
