The title of this post is inspired by the latest profile to be added to the Booked Out website, author of Addition and Fall GirlToni Jordan.

Booked Outers Bec Kavanagh and Esther Kennedy went along to the Writers at the Convent event in Abbotsford, Melbourne last month to see Toni speaking on a panel with Angela Savage and Meg Mundell. It was a brilliant session. All writers are engaging speakers and hearing about their different approaches to novel writing provoked great discussion about the highs and lows of perfecting a piece of writing, how that manuscript is refined with an editor and then finally ending up with the finished product, a published novel. Angela’s books are crime with an Asian twist. Toni’s romances are funny, charming and feature strong female leads. Meg’s debut Black Glass is speculative fiction with a very human feel.
