Earlier this year we had the honour and pleasure of meeting highly acclaimed Australian author Robert Drewe and his delightful partner Tracy at the All Saints Storylines Festival for secondary schools in Western Australia where Robert and many other authors were presenting, as was Jay.
Author of Shark Net, The Bodysurfers, Fortune, Grace and many other books, Robert Drewe became a favourite author of Jay's long before he thought he might write and an inspiration when he did. To recently hear back that he enjoyed reading Into the Sea is very much a highlight of the novel's journey to date. We’d like to share his comments….
I enjoyed "Into the Sea" very much. It was so evocative I felt I was there with Riley and Billie. It brims with true experience and descriptive energy. A great first novel and I look forward to reading Jay’s next offering. Best wishes, Rob.
Thank you Rob, your thoughts are very valued.
