— Appears in: ABC News [Online] , May 2012;
What do women want, in a literary sense and is it any different from what men want in a book?

Cleavage in Adelaide Ruth Starke , 1999 single work criticism
— Appears in: Viewpoint : On Books for Young Adults , Summer vol. 7 no. 4 1999; (p. 3-6)
Documents the publicity campaign which arose from a 12 year old girl reading Nikki Gemmell's Cleave : A Novel which she had borrowed from her school library. Starke focuses on the conduct of the campaign, activated by the girl's mother, through talkback radio and the use of petitions. Starke's conclusion is that, when the need arises, writers should take issue with censorship through negotiation with the "decision-makers" rather than in the court of the "shock jocks".
