Meet my co-panelists…
Rowena Cory Daniells, grew up on the Gold Coast back when it was fibro shacks, surf and sand. Her best selling author of the trilogy King Rolen’s Kin, set out to write the kind of books that you curl up with on a rainy Saturday afternoon. Her new fantasy trilogy, The Outcast Chronicles, will be released in 2012. Her noir-paranormal-crime The Price of Fame will also be released in 2012.
Anita Bell is the author of 3 of the Top 10 Bestselling Business Books of the last decade, and the first author to win an International Crimestoppers Award for a children’s crime series. Now also writing SF & Fantasy as AA Bell, she’s won the prestigious Norma K Hemming Award for Excellence in SF & Fantasy Themes –and is the first author to win it twice. Last year for Diamond Eyes, and this year for the sequel Hindsight, both set in the Gold Coast region of Moreton Bay. The grand finale to her multi-award winning trilogy launches this month with Leopard Dreaming, about a girl who can see history.
