MEET THE AUTHOR IN MILLTHORPE

LINDA VISMAN

Our Millthorpe Pop-Up is a celebration of Australian writing, our books all gathering together in a little gold-rush era village with stories whispering from every wild colonial verandah post. So tell us, Linda, how has your Australianness, or your experience of Australia, inspired or influenced your storytelling explorations?

I was born in England and came to Australia in 1954 at age five with my parents and three siblings; another brother was born here. For me looking back, it was the best thing my parents could have done for us kids. We lived in a rural area too, which was great. My mother hadn’t wanted to leave her home, her mother, and the things she was familiar with, but Dad was an adventurer in many ways. Poverty and three cases of polio in the family made life quite difficult during my high school years.
