Not only am I delighted to offer a copy of Bitter Greens, but I’m also pleased that Kate Forsyth has agreed to be interviewed on the sources of her inspiration. Kate is also participating in the AUSTRALIA DAY BOOK GIVEAWAY BLOG HOP so visit her blog and possibly win another of her books :)
Kate is the bestselling and award-winning author of more than twenty books, ranging from picture books to poetry to novels for both children and adults. Her list is so extensive it’s best to take a look at Goodreads to see all her books!
Kate, thanks so much for sharing your sources of inspiration with us. I’m looking forward to reading The Wild Girl but will stock up on sleep first as I tend to stay up into the wee small hours when reading your books :) And I love the paintings you’ve selected – it would seem that Titian’s muse was still weaving her magic when she inspired you to create your character of La Bella Strega.
Charlotte-Rose de la Force has been banished from the court of Versailles by the Sun King, Louis XIV, after a series of scandalous love affairs. She is comforted by an old nun, Sœur Seraphina, who tells her the tale of a young girl who, a hundred years earlier, is sold by her parents for a handful of bitter greens …
I’m also offering an e-copy of The Wedding Shroud as an extra:)
Don’t forget to enjoy Australia Day on 26 January!
