DR AMANDA CURTIN, AUTHOR OF ‘KATHLEEN O’CONNOR OF PARIS’

Amanda has a PhD in Writing and is an Accredited Editor (AE) with the Institute of Professional Editors.

She has won numerous fiction awards and has previously shared her very successful novel ‘Elemental’ with us.

This new biography, published by Fremantle Press , has received very favourable reviews, including this one from ANZ LitLovers

“every bit as captivating as Curtin’s fiction…Kathleen O’Connor of Paris is a wonderful book on many levels: it brings an under-appreciated Australian artist to new prominence; it tells a captivating story about an artist’s life; it shares the pain and the gains of the biographer’s art; and it recreates a Paris that is long, long gone, swamped by the tourist hordes and new developments.’

Please join us to hear more about this fascinating part of Kathleen O”Connor’s life and her connection to the Karrakatta Club.

Dr Rashida Murphy talks about her writing career, the ‘The Historian’s Daughter’ and her current work in progress.

Rashida Murphy obtained her Masters in English Literature and PhD in Writing from Edith Cowan University. She lives in Perth and has won various awards for her work in short fiction, poetry and prose. Her debut novel, The Historian’s Daughter, was published in 2016 by UWA Publishing and shortlisted for the 2015 Dundee International Book Prize.

Murphy presents us with deeply moving moments that test her characters, and creates a poignant atmosphere that resolves through reconciliation into a hopeful future.”
