Rachael King’s debut novel The Sound of Butterflies (2006) was a historical novel which tackled modern themes. Her latest novel Magpie Hall (2009) is a multi-layered story; a Gothic novel inside a ghost story, inside a Gothic novel.

Paula Morris parodied "chick lit" in Trendy But Casual (2007), and Hibiscus Coast (2005) has been described as a literary thriller. She recently published her first young adult novel, Ruined, a mystery with a supernatural twist, with Scholastic in the USA, and edited The Penguin Book of Contemporary New Zealand Short Stories (2009).

Both writers read from their work, and discuss their interest in different genres, the reality of being a writer today, and the satisfaction that comes with watching a new book venture out into the world. Chair: Dorothy Vinicombe.

Presented as a part oft he Auckland Writers and Readers Festival.
