Nicole Sinclair will give an insider’s look at an author’s experience of writing, including balancing writing with work and a young family. Nicole has lived and worked in Papua New Guinea and now resides in the south-west of Western Australia with her husband and two young daughters.
Nicole’s debut novel Bloodlines was shortlisted for the 2014 TAG Hungerford Award and published by Margaret River Press in 2017.
Thirty-one-year-old Beth, who’s grown up in Western Australia’s wheatbelt, is running from her past when she heads to an island in Papua New Guinea. Interwoven with Beth’s narrative about the joys and brutalities of island life is the story of her parents’ passionate, tender love for each other. But Clem and Rose’s union is beset with tragedy, forever marking the lives of those around them. Bloodlines is a layered novel with shifting settings, times and voices. At its heart it is a story about love – love found and love lost – and the choices that shape us. If offers insight into the complexities of daily life in Papua New Guinea and how it feels to be an outsider in our closest neighbour’s land.
