Lo­cal sci-fi au­thor to speak at li­brary

Mansfield Courier - - WHAT’S ON -

BELINDA Craw­ford is reg­u­larly asked some dif­fi­cult ques­tions.

How do you write a book? Is it hard? How do you turn an idea into a novel, stay mo­ti­vated and com­bat the dreaded in­ner critic?

Ms Craw­ford will tackle these ques­tions and more at her talk at Mans­field Li­brary next Thurs­day, Novem­ber 17 at 4pm.

Ms Craw­ford has re­cently re­leased ‘Riven’ the sec­ond book in The Hero Re­bel­lion se­ries for teens.

She is cur­rently writ­ing the fi­nal in­stal­ment in the suc­cess­ful se­ries, with plans to write many more ad­ven­tures in the world of Jørn.

Belinda Craw­ford is a horse-mad geek who loves rock mu­sic, hates pink and is oc­ca­sion­ally driven nuts by the need to or­gan­ise.

She grew up rid­ing fat, stub­born lit­tle ponies, and only dis­cov­ered the de­lights of read­ing af­ter her mum bought her a horse mag­a­zine.

Now, she writes sci­ence fic­tion, col­lects books like other peo­ple col­lect shoes and takes great joy in rid­ing fat, stub­born horses.

“We are for­tu­nate to have so many cre­ative peo­ple in Mans­field, who are will­ing to share their tal­ents with the com­mu­nity,” Mans­field Shire mayor Paul Volk­er­ing said.

Peo­ple of all ages are in­vited to at­tend the talk and snacks will be pro­vided.

Book­ings are pre­ferred so please call the Li­brary on 5775 2176 to re­serve your seat.
