Author to thrill readers at Q&A
BOOKWORMS of the Granite Belt are encouraged to come along to Stanthorpe Library on April 26 to meet author/novelist Leonie Johnson.
Ms Johnson will be discussing the journey of writing her fictional thriller Intruder.
The novel follows everyday housewife Emily Moore, who has a loving husband and family.
One day an unexpected encounter with an intruder turns her life on its head. Nothing seems to keep the intruder out of their home and life.
Ms Johnson has gone from working in the finance sector to pursuing her creative endeavours to produce the novel. She started with short stories
and poems in place of seemingly boring speeches. She progressed her creative imagination and bold dreams, allowing this to spark her creative ability into writing novels.
Her eight-month journey around Australia in 2015, travelling in a 1960 Triumph TR3a sports car, gave her time to smell the roses, enabling her to write a large portion of her novel and to open her mind.
This is a can’t miss event for any budding novelist.
