  • Isobel Blackthorn speaking at Belgrave library feat. Savannah Rose

    What does an audience expect an author talk event will be like? Will there be a powerpoint presentation? A slide show of images of old drafts, with bits of text crossed out and heaps of writing in the margins? Will the author explain her writing process and provide insights into her creative journey?


    Ive never created a power point presentation in my life! And we can forget the slide show of drafts. I do have a writing process and Ill definitely be talking about that, but what I most want to share are my sources of inspiration.



    I am profoundly inspired by setting. For me, writing a novel is like moving house and relocating somewhere else. I have to enjoy the new space Im inhabiting. I really have to want to be there. My most recent novels were inspired by the time I spent living in the Dandenong Ranges and the Yarra Valley east of Melbourne.

    Music also inspires me. Both novels have strong musical themes. So Im delighted that musical duo Savannah Rose have offered to come along and play a few songs. Especially because duo member Suzanne Diprose played a major role in the creation of both stories!


    Im very pleased to have been invited back by Belgrave library. Ive decided to make it a special occasion and have a one-off book sale to celebrate. Come along if youre in the area, and grab a bargain!
