In conversation with author Anita Heiss 1

A few years ago I went to the BWF (Brisbane Writerโ€™s Festival) to listen to one of my literary heroes – the wonderful Liz Byrski. On the panel with Liz was Anita Heiss, a woman I knew from her book Am I Black Enough for You; I say knew, although I hadnโ€™t actually read her book.

Remember the ad where the man said he was so impressed with a product he bought the company?  Well the panel discussion that day left me wanting to hear more from this funny, passionate, articulate woman, so I went out and bought her fiction book Tiddas, together with the non-fiction Am I Black Enough for You.

When I saw the programme for the 2016 BWF, I immediately booked into The Talking Circle to hear Anita speak about her new novel Barbed Wire and Cherry Blossoms and I am so thrilled she accepted our invitation to join the Conversation on Starts at 60.

I've had many careers in my life and loved each one! My new career blossomed when I retired and become an OAP. I am passionate about childhood literacy, books in general and my garden. I love Ballet, Opera, Concerts, Theatre, (both professional and community) and Movies. I tend to have opinions on most things and enjoy a good debate about the topic, not the person. In my thirties, I married my GOM (Gorgeous or Grumpy Old Man) the love of my life.
