Coming on Friday

Anne here. On Friday  I'm interviewing the wonderful Sulari Gentill, writer of excellent historical mysteries. Sulari's books first appeared in our monthly "What We're Reading" posts, then we interviewed her just prior to a US book tour she was doing with three other authors. Sulari+gentill

She came back home to the dreadful Australian bushfires and faced up to them incredibly close and personal, with the world around her burning and her husband and eighteen year old son fighting the fires for days on end, while Sulari and her dogs were evacuated, having to wait, helplessly, not knowing whether she had a home, or a husband and son. We wenches watched her facebook page in horror as events unfolded.   You might have read about them in the New York Times —that's her husband mentioned in the first line of the article. You can listen to Sulari herself talking about it here

Now she has a new book out —TESTAMENT OF CHARACTER—and the Wenches are delighted to welcome her back.

Stay tuned for the interview on Friday. Leave a comment and you'll be in the draw for one of Sulari's books. See you then.

  1. Looking forward to the interview with Sulari. I really feel for all those people who actually had fire – all I had to contend with was the smoke, and that is as close as I ever want to get.

  6. This post really brings home how life tests us in awe-full ways. I’ve been following this long crisis and have taken part by donating to Australian animal welfare organizations. So many animals lost and homeless! I’m grateful for the technology that makes this and other good works around the world not just possible but simple. For those interested, look up WWF-Australia and RSPCA NSW. Lots of “people” places to give, too. While I’m at it, special shoutout to Chef Andres and World Central Kitchen, who go absolutely everywhere to provide edible comfort in disaster situations. We only have one world environment, but so many ways to support it, whether it’s materially or with positive thoughts/prayers. Looking forward to the interview with Sulari, for sure.

  11. How awful and frightening the Australian fires must have been. My father and brother were both volunteer firefighters in the small New Jersey town where I grew up, but they never faced that type of danger.
