Word of Mouth TV caught up with Holly Ringland on her whirlwind tour of Australia. Her novel, The Lost Flowers of Alice Hart, was one of the debut sensations of the year. Holly talks with us about the language of flowers and what it feels like to have your writing dreams come true. She also offers a great cookbook recommendation for all our vegan fans (we know there are a few).
Word of Mouth TV had such a great time interviewing authors at Writing NSW's Kids & Young Adult Festival. The events were packed but we still managed to persuade authors Jaclyn Moriarty, Garth Nix and Belinda Murrell to spare some time to talk about their latest books and share their book and food tips. Everyone else must have had a great time too, because the event trended fourth on Twitter for the day, no mean feat.
We are so excited. This week we feature our first debut author Lauren Chater, who has written a beautiful novel set in World War II Estonia, called The Lace Weaver. It's a story of love and courage in one small country caught between warring powers. We cook Estonian ribs and investigate Lauren's blog The Well Read Cookie.
