With guest host, Sarah Williams: Barbara Hannay has been writing rural romance for twenty years and has seen many changes along the way. We talk about her early days writing for Mills and Boon before being head hunted by Penguin.
Over recent years her books have had multiple stories and time lines and it is an art the way she weaves these together. When she’s not writing, she teaches writing workshops, goes on retreats with other writer friends and enjoys living in the beautiful North Queensland Tablelands.
It was at the Townsville Writers Festival two years ago when I first met Barbara and I credit her with inspiring me to write my own rural romance novel – The Brothers of Brigadier Station. You can find out more about Barbara Hannay here.
