I was very fortunate to attend a talk presented by Liz Byrski at the Ballajura Community Library last weekend. Liz shared with us the journey of writing her wonderful new book In Love and War.
I have been a fan since I picked up a copy of Belly Dancing for Beginners several years ago. I fell in love with her as an author when I read Remember Me.
Liz is a truly gifted story teller, a hero to women, to me. In her latest non-fiction book In Love and War Liz shares her journey in writing this post war tale of heroes and heroines with remarkable candor. We are allowed an insight into the writing process, along with her own fears and misgivings.
I couldn’t help but cheer her on until the end even though the outcome of Liz’s journey home was clearly in my hands. After many years the book is complete. Thank you Liz Byrski for you honesty, perseverance and prose.
