Bookmarks with Deborah Challinor

From Afternoons, 2:32 pm on 27 March 2024

This week for Bookmarks we speak to one of New Zealand's best selling novelists Deborah Challinor.

The talented writer has a knack for writing gripping, accurate historical fiction which comes from her background as a doctored historian.

She joins Jesse to talk about what she likes to read, watch and listen to when she's not penning a best seller herself.
