It’s my pleasure to introduce another one of our RWA talented authors, Barbara Hannay.
I’m from: currently living on a misty hillside on the Atherton Tablelands
Three words to describe me: writer, reader, gardener
At home I cook: as little as possible, although my Greek Lemon Cake is in demand.
My worst habit is: negative thinking
It’s a bit daggy but I love: the slow movements in classical music
My first job was: covering buttons in a button factory (holiday job) or perhaps you mean my first proper job, which was teaching (high school).
My day job is: I’m in the lucky position that I’m writing full time
Saving for: travel to experience the four seasons
I procrastinate by: digging up weeds
Three things people might not know about me are: I’ve never seen snow. I’ve played netball for Queensland. I have a wonderful RITA statue sitting on my desk.
Favourite author: Rosamunde Pilcher
Current reading: One Day by David Nicholls
Favourite book as a child: Seven Little Australians
Favourite movie: Moonstruck
I would most like to meet: the ancestor who passed on my writing gene
When I was young I wanted to be: a waitress with an apron, a cap and a notepad
Why I write: Because I can’t help it. It’s how I’m wired. I’ve been writing stories since I first picked up a pen.
Latest project: I’m currently writing a (contracted) single title novel for Penguin Australia.
