Australian Romance Raeders: Charlaine Harris visits Australia interview

Charlaine Harris will be in Australia later this month for a number of events (see details at the end of this article). As a special treat, in anticipation of the Charlaine’s visit, here is an extended interview with her.

What kind of books did you love when you were a child?

I was as omnivorous a reader as a child as I am as an adult. I read the usual books: Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, all the series books, though I wasn’t as fond of the Bobbsey Twins or the Hardy Boys. I also read Poe, Bronte, and anything else I could get my hands on.

How old were you when you knew that you wanted to be a writer?

I think I was seven.

When did you first sit down and start to write? How long after that before you were published?

I started to write in grade school. I was published when I was in my late twenties.
