San­dra Leigh Price

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - BOOKS -

Can­berra-born San­dra Leigh Price started her ca­reer in the theatre, co-found­ing a small com­pany. Her move into writ­ing was the next step. “The theatre is a palace for peo­ple who love words. My plays were very wordy and prob­a­bly longed to be nov­els more than plays. Writ­ing fic­tion al­lowed me to cre­ate a world that wasn’t de­pen­dent on any­one else but my­self,” says Sarah. The River Sings is the 44-year-old’s sec­ond novel, in­spired by her con­vict an­ces­tors.
