Tara June Winch: From A House With No Books To Bestselling Author

When Tara June Winch was 23 she'd already published her first novel, Swallow The Air. Not only did that book launch her writing career it became an English text for school syllabuses all over the country that's still used to this day.

Tara has won a David Unaipon Award and a Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for her writing which depicts the incredible influence of the land. Her latest novel The Yield was released earlier this year and it's an ode to the Wiradjuri language.

Tara now lives in France with her 13-year-old daughter Lila and her husband and in this conversation with Marlee Silva, she reflects on how travel plays an important role in her life as well as how it's influenced her writing.
