Some authors write first and research later. Judy Nunn, author and actress, told the BBWF blogger that she loves to get the research down first. Nunn is 100 pages into writing her next novel which is about Maralinga in South Australia, and the British nuclear testing. After the research is in place, the characters take over, says Nunn. There are some real characters in the books so Nunn needs to travel carefully she says. Australia has a short but wonderful history with no shortage of stories says Nunn. Once she has an idea for a book in her head Nunn keeps at it until it is done.
