I have been very fortunate to record an interview with New Zealand author, Dame Fiona Kidman, ahead of her two appearances at Featherston Booktown 2019. In this chat, Dame Fiona talks about her progression as a writer, her love of the short story form, the state of gender equality, and what you can expect if you have been lucky enough to snaffle tickets for her Featherston Booktown events! Thank you to Dame Fiona for making the time to chat, and to Barb Hyde and Mary Biggs for helping make the interview happen!
