Stephanie Johnson on writing novels

Katherine Dewar tweet on writing by Stephanie Johnson

On Friday 3rd February, historical and contemporary novelist Stephanie Johnson spoke at the Auckland branch of the NZ Society of Authors meeting.

Stephanie’s 1996 novel, The Heart’s Wild Surf, was one of the first New Zealand novels I read on emigrating here twenty years ago.

A pithy feminist, Stefanie spoke with wit and wisdom. I tweeted some of the gems I most appreciated. Here they are for those of you not on Twitter.


Stephanie did reveal she was enjoying particular new success writing under her pseudonym but no, she didn’t reveal her nom de plume.

If you’d like more from me about writing, my debut novel and my new novel-in-progress you can sign up for email updates here or follow me on Twitter.
