Kurri Kurri and Cessnock libraries will host a book lover’s treat with an author visit featuring one author but two very different genres, thriller and romantic comedy.

Hunter author Janette Paul, who also writes as Jaye Ford, will visit to the libraries on Thursday, October 12 to talk about her latest book and career. 

The international best-selling author not only writes romantic comedies as Janette Paul, but pens gritty thrillers as the award-winning crime author Jaye Ford.

Paul’s presentation is expected to focus on authoring seven books, and her career as a news and sports journalist (in which she became the first woman to host a live sport show on Australian television).

Her latest novel Amber and Alice was released this year, and was inspired by a camping trip she took with her family some 15 years ago. Readers can take a hilarious road trip into the Australian outback in this witty romantic comedy, with an enticing family mystery thrown in.

The author describes it as Bridget Jones meets Thelma and Louise, as one woman finds the answers she needs on a trip into the stunning Australian desert.

The one-hour talks will take place at Kurri Kurri Library at 1.30pm and Cessnock Library at 5.30pm.

Books will be available on the day and a signing will be offered.

Refreshments will be provided and bookings are essential; call Kurri Library on 4937 1638 or Cessnock Library on 4993 4399 to secure your place.
