Writers and Readers Festival – Robin Bowles

By October 4, 2008No Comments

Saturday included a series of workshops and sessions at Tintern College as part of the Maroondah Writers and Readers Festival. The first session for this morning included writer and investigator Robin Bowles.

Robin is at the forefront of crime writing and has written extensively about the Jaidyn Leskie case and the disappearance of Peter Falconio. Robin is also heavily involved in Sisters in Crime Australia, a group that promotes women crime writers.

Robin was thoroughly engaging as a speaker and discussed her background in marketing and her decision to begin writing as a professional author. Robin spoke extensively about the challenges she has experienced and provided advice for people considering a writing career.

The Maroondah Writer and Readers Festival continues with events on Saturday the 4th and Sunday the 5th of October.
