Meet bestselling author Christian White at Frankston Library

Monday 20 January 2020

After the success of his first novel The Nowhere Child, Christian White will visit Frankston Library to talk about his latest offering, The Wife and the Widow and the manuscript writing process.

White’s debut novel, The Nowhere Child is one of Australia’s bestselling debut novels ever and The Wife and the Widow became an instant bestseller.

Frankston City Libraries Manager, Tammy Goodwin said it was wonderful to welcome authors who grew up in the area back to share their success.

“Christian White is no stranger to Frankston City and it’s great to have him visit Frankston Library to share his experience and knowledge with our community,” said Ms Goodwin.

The Nowhere Child was an instant success and The Wife and the Widow was an amazing follow-up, with a very interesting twist, but I won’t say anymore, I don’t want to give away any spoilers for those who haven’t read it yet.”

Before Christian became a screenwriter and an award-winning author with his best-selling novel The Nowhere Child, he slogged away at his computer on nights and weekends, relying on a long list of unusual day jobs to supplement his writing habit.

Join us as Christian White reveals the importance of letting others read your work, and shares all the things he learned from Stephen King. He is honest and self-deprecating, as he explains how writing for the screen helped him write for the page.

Born and bred on the Mornington Peninsula, Christian now lives on the other side of Port Phillip Bay with his wife, filmmaker Summer DeRoche and their adopted greyhound, Issy.
