Special Notes: The Rosie Project is 1930s screwball comedy updated for 2013. Hepburn and Grant in Bringing Up Baby, or Rosalind Russell and Grant in His Girl Friday have the exact same pitch, intelligence, wit and farce with a love story at the centre of it all…It is astonishing that this is [a] first novel…This is hand-polished writing…Extremely loud and incredibly long applause.’ Age

Author Talk - Hugh 'Obi' O'Brien

Meet 'Obi' who went from Clearance Diver to Mercenary

Growing up on the family sheep and wheat farm near Young, NSW, Hugh ‘Obi’ O’Brien applied for the Navy as a Clearance Diving candidate, and against all odds found success and acceptance with these subaquatic supermen. With an unquenched thirst for adversity, Obi applied for Special Forces with the Army’s counterterrorism unit, TAG (East), a secretive team of divers and commandos tasked with defending the domestic population from harm. In 2007, Hugh left the Special Forces and has since pursued a career in private security. He continues to seek adventure wherever it may lie, be it pirate-hunting in the Red Sea or mentoring soldiers in Afghanistan.

Brunch with Maggie Mackellar

In 2011 Maggie Mackellar moved from her family's farm in Central West New South Wales to the east coast of Tasmania with her children and assorted menagerie to live with a farmer. In this book she explores learning to love again after living through grief and the complexities of doing this in a community with which she is unfamiliar, with two young children. She reflects on love after grief, juggling being a mother and negotiating a burgeoning relationship, the rhythms of country life, displacement and the writing life.
