With the line between fact and fiction becoming increasingly blurred, award-winning authors Jenny Pattrick (historical fiction) and Elizabeth Smither (poet, essayist, novelist and short story writer) discuss where research leaves off and creativity begins. Denniston Rose, the first in a trilogy of books set on the West Coast on the 19th century, was an instant hit for Jenny in 2003 and was this country’s best-selling book for two years. Her most recent novel, Inheritance, is set in Samoa in the 1960s. Elizabeth was our first female Poet Laureate and her poems regularly appear both here and overseas. This year she has added to her extensive list of publications – some 29 in all – with a delightful writer’s memoir, The Commonplace Book.
