21 November 2016 Hot off the Press

 Prolific romance writer and Coffs Harbour local Annie Seaton will be returning to the Harry Bailey Memorial Library on November 30 with the very first editions of her latest novel.

‘Daintree’, the second of her Porter Sisters books, is being published just the day before her appearance.

Annie was an internationally published e-book author who won the AusRomToday Australian Author of the Year award in 2014, before she had ‘Kakadu Sunset’ - her first traditionally-published print book - released in 2015.

Annie gains inspiration from the natural beauty of landscapes and is passionate about raising awareness of the need to preserve the pristine areas that surround us. Each winter, she and her husband leave Coffs to roam the remoter parts of Australia for story ideas and research.

‘Daintree’ brings the tropical rainforest landscape to life through the eyes of the characters.

“The Daintree breeds survivors, those who can weather the storms, heat and floods that come hand-in-hand with its beauty. Doctor Emma Porter is one such survivor, dedicated to her patients and to preserving this precious land where she has made a home.

Emma's quiet life is disrupted when Doctor Jeremy Langford starts working at the hospital, bringing back painful memories: Jeremy was her first love and embodies all that she left behind in Sydney. Jeremy has demons of his own, however, and the tight-knit community of Dalrymple seems to promise the peace he has been looking for.
But while some come to the Daintree to find shelter, others are here to exploit the rainforest's riches. And they will stop at nothing to get their hands on its bounty.”

Annie will be at the Harry Bailey Memorial Library on Wednesday, November 30. The Book Warehouse will be attendance selling copies of the new book ‘hot off the press’.

Light refreshments will be served. To secure your place, book online via the Library website libraries.coffsharbour.nsw.gov.au or phone 6648 4900.
