Annie has me hooked at mango cocktails and tanned waiters, and I now can’t wait – along with thousands of other avid fans – for the imminent arrival of Annie’s new book, Daintree. Today we share the countdown with Annie, and as we go to air, it’s only thirteen sleeps to go. Forget evergreen content, this is one episode worth dropping everything for and listening to as this ever generous Australian author shares her over the top excitement as her baby gets ready to fly. Activist romance, eco-adventure romance, or whatever label you choose to describe Annie’s books, if Daintree is anyway near as good as Kakadu, then we have our very own Aussie new infamous author at large (having her name embossed on the cover already gives us a clue as to Pan Macmillan’s opinion). This woman is gunna be infamous and we knew her first. There are no lessons to be learned in this episode, merely the sharing in the intense joy of an author who has slogged her way to the top. If we learn a little of what it’s like to worry a book to life, then that’s a bonus. Buy the book, share the joy, and remember, we knew her first. You can find Annie here and listen to our first interview here.
