Successful novelist to share tips at Casino Library

PARAMEDIC-turned novelist Katherine Howell will share her personal story and tips for budding authors at a session at the Casino Library next month.

Ms Howell worked as a paramedic for 15 years before releasing her first novel, Frantic, in 2007.

Since then she has released another five books, all in the crime/thriller genre centred around a fictional Sydney detective, Ella Marconi and a diverse collection of paramedics.

Ms Howell will talk about her novels - Frantic, Cold Justice, Silent Fear, The Darkest Hour, Violent Exposure, and Web of Deceit - and about the importance of persistence when trying to become a successul writer.

The seminar is free and will be held at the Casino Library, Graham Place, at 1pm, October 16.

Anyone wanting to go will need to register by calling the library on 6620 0250 or by emailing rucrl@richmondvalley.nsw.gov.au before 4pm, Monday 14 October.
