I have an interview over at writer Belinda Crawford's website here.
all about writing other cultures.
A Remarkable Privilege: Glenda Larke on Writing Other Cultures
And here, apropos of nothing much:
me trying on shoes in a Javan shoe shop.
Packing the car at dawn at the motel in Coolgardie
after our first night away.
Glowing gold-burnished Eucalypt trees near Norseman
Lake Cowan -- mostly dry and salt...
At Eyre, looking at the great Southern Ocean. It was cold and windy!
Bunda Cliffs, Head of the Great Australian Bight, where the female Right Whales come in from the Antarctic to give birth once every 3 years or so...
|And if you look carefully you will see the female Right Whale centre right. Ok, so it looked better through binoculars!!|

|In this case, the Tin Duck is actually a very elegant swan.|
And for those who don't know, the Tin Duck is the colloquial name for the Western Australian award given to the Best Long Work (i.e. book) of the year in the field of speculative fiction, in this case that was published in 2016.
My thanks to everyone -- it is truly an honour to receive an award because people cared enough to vote for the book!
The prize-winning book in question?
THE FALL OF THE DAGGER.
