Episode 3: Geography

This month we talk about geography and how that affects storytelling. Also, if an author lives in a country that is very different from where their reader lives, how can the author help the reader understand a geography they’ve never seen and may never see?

Luna Blue is our guest. Luna’s book, After The Bronze, is set in the bush in Australia and while definitely telling a very sexy story, she also helps the reader glean insight into small-town Australia and what life is like there.

In the episode, we mention the following links:
