GUEST BLOG: Fiona Palmer, author of The Saddler Boys talks about what books she’s loving.

Well I’m back after a busy week and a half of touring, which included a stopover at Booktopia to sign 300 copies of my latest book, The Saddler Boys. I was lucky enough to take a tour through the massive Booktopia warehouse to see how it all operates: amazing. My book club order would have been whizzing around getting processed while I was there.  Because I’ve been so busy with touring and prom... Read more

Fiona Palmer on the 2015 RWA Conference in Melbourne

I’ve just returned from the Romance Writers of Australia Conference in Melbourne, catching up with fellow authors, publishers and agents, so I thought I’d mention three books from other Australian romance writers that I’ve loved in recent times.

GUEST BLOG: Bestselling author Fiona Palmer on what she’s been reading

I love book clubs and it’s wonderful to have one out here in tiny Pingaring – my hometown three hours south-east of Perth. It’s amazing how far ladies will travel to talk about books – and chat, drink wine and eat yummy food!! Our group of around ten come from all directions, some travel sixty kilometres to get here. But what a great way to read books outside of your comfort zone. I usually rea... Read more

GUEST BLOG: What Fiona Read – The July Round Up (by bestselling author Fiona Palmer)

BOOKTOBERFEST GUEST BLOG: Getting back to reading, by Fiona Palmer, author of The Sunnyvale Girls

It wasn’t until I was twenty and working as a teachers aid that I was reintroduced to the joy of books. I read Mem Fox’s book on how important it is to rea... Read more

GUEST BLOG: My Inspiration for The Sunnyvale Girls by Fiona Palmer

My latest release, The Sunnyvale Girls, has real life past and present moments weaved into it. My inspiration for this story originated from the Italian prisoners of war stationed on farms in our wheat belt area in rural Western Australia.
