With New Novel The Good People, Hannah Kent Moves Past Burial Rites, Natasha Rudra , 2016 single work review
— Review of Burial Rites Hannah Kent 2013 single work novel ;
'You could almost look at at it as a case of two for the price of one. Hannah Kent's 2013 debut novel Burial Rites - the story of an Icelandic woman beheaded for her role in a dual murder - might have been one of the most talked about first novels in recent memory. But it also sowed the seed of her second novel, The Good People. ...'
Graeme Simsion Gives His New Character Adam Sharp a Dilemma and Lots of Music, Jason Steger , 2016 single work column

'What if a database modelling consultant wanted to become a screenwriter, and to help his script get made into a film he turned it into a novel?'

'It was just before Christmas 2012 that I sat with Graeme Simsion in his Fitzroy home discussing the release the following month of his first novel, The Rosie Project. ...'

Looking for Alibrandi Author Melina Marchetta Takes to Literary Crime, Linda Morris , 2016 single work review
— Review of Tell The Truth, Shame The Devil Melina Marchetta 2016 single work novel ;

'There was a time when Melina Marchetta resented the success of her first novel, Looking for Alibrandi, a beloved Australian book for young adults.'

'Marchetta followed up 11 years later with Saving Francesca, also set in Sydney's inner west, and for a while she felt typecast as a writer of "good stories about Italian girls in the suburbs". ...'

Illicit Love by Ann McGrath and Skin Deep by Liz Conor: behind Black and White Cliches, Lynette Russell , 2016 single work review
— Review of Skin Deep : Settler Impressions of Aboriginal Women Liz Conor 2016 single work non-fiction ;
'... Complementary to McGrath's work and almost reading as a counter to it, Liz Conor's Skin Deep examines the preoccupations of European-Australians in their encounters with Aboriginal women. While negative images of Aboriginal people generally were common in the 19th century, Aboriginal women in particular were subjected to quite hideous representations. ...'
Family Skeleton Review : Carmel Bird's Witty Dissection of a Wealthy Family, Peter Pierce , 2016 single work review
— Review of Family Skeleton Carmel Bird 2016 single work novel ;
'The mordantly witty Family Skeleton, supposedly related from a wardrobe by one of them, is Carmel Bird's ninth novel, and as vibrant and off-beat as those that have happily gone before. The O'Day family, its fortune made as funeral directors, especially to Melbourne's rich, and latterly from the death-driven theme park Heavenly Days, lives in the mansion Bellevue, built for them in Toorak in 1933. ...'
Note: Includes portrait of Author Carmel Bird
Turning Pages : How to Write for Television and Get It on Screen, Jane Sullivan , 2016 single work column
'Want to write a great television drama series? Simple: there are just 13 rules. Start with an anti-hero (usually a man, could be a woman). Give him a family. Set your show at the end of an era. Give your hero a mentor or protege. Add a nemesis with a problem of his own. ...'
