Today I'd like to welcome Australian author Adele Jones. She's just released her debut novel, Integrate (which was reviewed in August by Anne Hamilton), and will also be releasing another novel later this month. Read on to find out why!
It is said that authors should write the kind of book they like to read. What is your favourite genre? Who are your favourite authors?
I like well-paced books with substance, such as strong social justice themes or overcoming great personal challenges – and also historical mystery with elements of romance. Compatible themes are often found in faction or non-fiction works, such as ‘A Friend like Henry’ by Nuala Gardner, and Ian Rayner’s story in ‘The Biggest Issue?’, but can be done well in fictional works, for example Francine Rivers ‘Redeeming Love’. I probably don’t have a favourite author as an adult reader, given part of the delight of reading is exploring each author’s unique style – and there are some great writers out there. That said, I’d really like to read more of Matthew Pearl’s work. From what I’ve seen he has a great storytelling skill.
