The Who’s Who of the Orenda Roadshows – Part Six

Over the past few weeks I’ve been sharing my memories of Orenda Roadshow’s past, and now it’s time to tell you about the authors appearing at Orenda Roadshows yet to come. Over the course of this week I’ll be spotlighting all of the fabulous talent you can find if you turn up to one of the five events happening around the country from 24th – 28th February. Check out the other authors in parts one, two, three, four or five.

Now the next two authors will both bring something different, but something pretty dang special, to your bookshelves. Norway’s Kjell Ola Dahl and New Zealand’s Vanda Symon both write absolutely cracking series’, and Kjell’s standalone book, The Courier, was a highlight of my reading year last year. If you want to hear from their books, come and join me at one of the roadshows where they’ll be talking about their latest novels, Sister and Containment.

For those who don’t yet know what an Orenda Roadshow is – and if not why not? – it is your opportunity to meet and greet and listen to one of the largest collections of authors outside of a traditional book festival. Featuring a wealth of Orenda Books finest authors, all of whose books I can heartily recommend, the roadshow has something for everyone. If you are a big fan of any of the authors, or the publisher, even if you are just interested in trying out new books from a highly diverse range of writers (there are people here from as far away as Norway, Finland, Germany, France and New Zealand as well as the UK) then this is the place you want to be. So let’s find about a bit more about the authors …

About the Author
