Session 3B—Playing for keeps

Sports-themed romances have enjoyed a second wave of popularity in recent years. Panellists will talk about the author who originally got them hooked on sports romances and those that are leading the field these days. We will ask them how they choose which sport to feature, if they model their ‘team’ or athletes on existing ones and whether they have gone behind the scenes in the name of research. We will also ask panellists to read a scene from one of their favourite sports-themed romances—whether their own or from their favourite author.
