Author Talk: Wendy James

July 29, 2017, 2:00pm - July 29, 2017, 1:00am

Wendy James has been described as Australia’s Queen of Domestic Suspense. She is the author of seven works of fiction, including the best-selling The Mistake and Out of the Silence. The Golden Child is a novel that grapples with modern-day spectres of selfies, selfishness and cyberbullying. It plays with our fears of parenting and culpability, and it blows wide open the personas that teenagers construct for themselves in both the playground and online – worlds so often hidden from their parents. Wendy James demonstrates that the parenting stakes have never been higher as social media adds layers of complexity and intensity to growing up, sometimes with tragic consequences.
