Breaking out from the West

Deborah Robertson is working on her second novel. “I’m at the stage when I wake up and think about it I want to get to the desk. It’s  simply the most enjoyable thing I am doing.”

The BBWF blogger who spent some time in WA and has never made it back there was curious about  Robertson’s perspective about life in the West for an author. Robertson said the festival provided a  great break to leave the West and to realise there is a much bigger community of writers. Attending the event breaks down the distance of living in the west.

“It’s a good place to work because there’s nothing else to do but it’s also isolating.”  Robertson’s first novel was Careless.
