Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff, Nic Brasch (interviewer), 2016 single work interview

'Nic Brasch: Welcome to The Garret. Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff are the biggest thing in Australian literature right now. Technically, they’re writing YA - Young Adult Fiction. But their Illuminae Files series is a brilliant, ground-breaking piece of YA science fiction. Amie and Jay call it Space Opera. I just call it great writing. It’s writing that forces you to forget about the labels and just lose yourself in the story. Their first two books, Illuminae and Gemina are out now, and readers around the world are anxiously awaiting for the finale. It’s my absolute privilege to welcome Amie Kaufman and Jay Kristoff to The Garret.' (Introduction)

A. S. Patric, Nic Brasch (interviewer), 2016 single work interview

'Nic Brasch: Welcome to the Garret. A. S. Patric is the latest in a long list of esteemed writers who have claimed the Miles Franklin Award. Alec joins the likes of Patrick White, Tim Winton, Thomas Keneally, Elizabeth Jolley, Peter Carey. And the honour of this award isn’t lost on this self-described kid from the Western suburbs. We sat in one of the board rooms in the State Library of Victoria recently, and talked about writing. I wanted to learn about his process, his influences, and ultimately, why he writes. What I find is an immensely talented and honest writer. I started by asking him the question all award winners get asked: How did he do it?' (Introduction)
