Author talk with JB Rowley

How does a mother cope when she is forced to walk away from her three children and never see them again? “Whisper my secret” is the true story of a devoted mother who carried her heartbreaking secret to her grave. JB was inspired to write her mother’s memoir after she found her secret hidden in an old cash tin in a wardrobe after her mother’s death. When she was a child, her mother once said she would give her a story to write one day. JB knew this was the story she was meant to write.

JB is an award winning author who also writes murder mysteries under the pseudonym of Brigid George. Join us to hear JB talk about the different writing styles she’s used in writing a memoir and writing mysteries and how she came to write “Whisper my Secret”.

JB Rowley grew up in Orbost, Victoria. She spent her childhood chasing snakes and lizards down hollow logs, climbing trees and searching the local rubbish tip for books to read. She did a lot of reading, usually curled up in the hay shed. These days, she lives in Melbourne, where, when she’s not writing, she works as an English tutor and an oral storyteller.

A light supper will be provided.
