Word of Mouth TV interviews Natasha Lester, author of The Paris Seamstress - a feast for fashionistas and romantics everywhere. The Paris Seamstress has gained accolades from all corners of the world, which is appropriate given it spans the globe, taking readers from Paris to New York and Australia and back again. And it's not just a fashion feast; we served Natasha a divine lobster and salmon mousse with caviar, inspired by a scene in the novel. Enjoy!

Word of Mouth TV had such a great time interviewing authors at Writing NSW's Kids & Young Adult Festival.

Everyone else must have had a great time too, because the event trended fourth on Twitter for the day, no mean feat.
