The launch

Last Friday night, Greythorne was officially launched at Paperchain Bookstore by award-winning Canberra horror author Kaaron Warren, and I may be biased but I think it went splendidly.  Kaaron and I had a bit of a Q&A about the writing process and what inspired Greythorne, then I read a couple of excerpts, including the description that inspired Pamela Horsely’s fabulous painting of Professor Greythorne (which I’ve written about in more detail here), then we opened it up to the audience for questions. They were a wonderful audience and asked some really interesting questions — I couldn’t have asked for more. I had a really fun night and I’d like to thank all those who helped make it a success, especially Kaaron, the wonderful staff at Paperchain, everyone who attended, and my husband Tristan, who took these lovely photos.
