Author spotlight: Peta-Jo

15 February 2013

Peta-JoPeta-Jo is the author of contemporary romance Feral Bells and the non-fiction Stress Leave: The Real Guide to Family Road Trips. Peta-Jo won the Qld Arts Council’s New Regional Writer Scholarship in 2004 and the Kleenex Mums’ inaugural So You Think You Can Blog competition in 2010. Peta-Jo lives in Hervey Bay, Queensland.

Welcome Peta-Jo to the spotlight …

Have you attended one of ARRA’s events before?

Never been before and beyond excited about attending this year.

What are you most looking forward to at ARRC2013?

Making friends with some of the coolest people on the planet–romance fans! And getting feedback on what women most enjoy about the genre.

Tell us about your latest book…

Feral Bells charts the romantic course of a North Queensland woman who is not looking to fall in love. It’s not just an unlikely love story but about the sometimes-dysfunctional ties we have to our families and hometowns.

What do you have coming up next?

Trash Fiasco is about a group of high-school mates, now in their thirties, who are negotiating the tough terrain of one’s suicide. It also dissects one lifelong romance and poses the question: how well do we really know anybody?

Keep an eye out for Peta-Jo’s book:

    I like the sound of Feral Bells and Trash Fiasco, Writing about suicide takes a brave and delicate hand, and it needs to be talked about. Well done 🙂
