Wendy Harmer

Where were you born?

I was born in Yarram, Gippsland, Victoria. 

Where do you live now?
I now live at Collaroy on Sydney’s Northern Beaches.

What was your favourite book growing up and what is your favourite book now?
My favourite book was Lord of The Rings — now I have dozens and dozens of books I love, but every so often I read Lord of The Rings and still love it.

What were you like at school?
I was the pretty quiet type, spent a lot of time in the library reading and writing. I loved school.

What inspires you to write?
I can’t imagine now writing, but a good story is always the thing — finding a story you want to tell is what it’s all about.

Where is your favourite place to sit and write?
In my office — I have a lot of books around me and they are a comfort — I like quite a look of clutter and things to look at when I write.

What would you be if you weren’t a writer?
I’ve been a stand up comedian, radio broadcaster and TV host — they were all fun! Although being a landscape painter would make me happy.

What advice would you give to anyone who wants to be a writer?
Simple. Start writing — glue your bum to the chair!

Is there anything else you would like to tell us about yourself?
I am trying to think of something I haven’t told everyone already, for years and years — nup. Seems to be about it.
