Don’t Panic! Author Talk at the Wollongong Library
January 28, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm AEDT
My talk covered my early childhood, growing up in the south of England, making nestboxes, hides and bird feeders, and how stumbling across an old slide projector and my great, great grandfather’s slide collection ignited my passion for wildlife photography. Fast forward a few years to my work-experience (and employment) at the Australian Museum of Natural History, and how that started me on my journey as a natural history author.
There were a few stories about my trips around and throughout Australia, especially the first one, and then I chatted about some of my more recent books and how I became the Bird Nerd columnist for Australian Geographic.
I also gave people an insight into the book-writing industry, how I go about developing an idea and the process involved in turning that initial idea into the book on the (library) shelf.
