Elizabeth Pulford describes herself as a writer and gardener, enjoying both from her home in Waikouaiti. She has a large number of books published, including books for children, junior and young adult novels and Castello Italiano – an adult fiction novel. We’ll be chatting about her writing and her latest books – a young adult novel Sea Dreamer and a children’s book Castlecliff and the Fossil Princess.
I’ll also be talking to Dunedin writer Ella West about her young adult novel Thieves, which has been named as a finalist in the 2007 New Zealand Post Book Awards and as a Storylines Notable Book. Ella has a background in journalism, so as well as talking about her book, we’ll be talking about how her journalistic skills translate to writing fiction.
