Fiona Kidman's second session at the Marlborough Book Festival.

Words have always played a role in Dame Fiona Kidman’s life. While renowned these days as one of the country’s most known and loved authors, she comes from a background of journalism, scriptwriting and teaching.

How she made the move to become a Novel Woman, is the focus of this session. Tessa Anderson will discuss with her the intricacies of dedicating yourself to a life of writing. What does it take, where does she gain her inspiration and how does she capture the mind of the eventual reader?

Plus find out about her latest novel, The Infinite Air, which is based on the life of New Zealand’s most renowned female pilot, Jean Batten.

This session is perfect for readers who want to find out how the stories they love, came to fruition.
