An evening with author, Catherine Robertson

It is with much pleasure that Wellington City Libraries will be hosting an evening with Wellington writer Catherine Robertson on Wednesday 6th March 2013 at 6.00 pm.

Syndetics book coverCatherine lives in Wellington, where she was born, with her husband and two teenage sons. She has previously lived in San Francisco and Birmingham. She has been writing since she her late teens, and manages to find time to write even though running a business full time with her husband, and managing a family. Her first novel, The Sweet Second Life of Darrell Kincaid published in 2011. This is a wonderfully witty story about a romance novelist’s complete life change, from her secure happy marriage, to being single in a city on the other side of the world.

Syndetics book coverThe not so perfect life of Mo Lawrence / Catherine Robertson.Catherine’s second novel was published in 2012. This is another very amusing story, about the trials and tribulations faced by a wife and mother of two small children, when the family move to San Francisco because of the husband’s work. A wonderful array of well-drawn diverse characters populates this novel.

Both these novels have been internationally praised, and translated into German and soon, Italian. Her next and third novel soon to be published is titled, The Misplaced Affections of Charlotte Fforbes. All Catherine’s novels have such great titles.

Catherine Robertson was one of the groups of writers chosen to represent New Zealand at last years Frankfurt Book Fair. For a fascinating insight into this week in Frankfurt, her blog on the Book Fair is available on Hopefully you will enjoy her other past blogs and keep up with her most recent, all from a writer that is direct and interesting, and has a wonderful sense of humour.

We invite you to join us and the many readers who have enjoyed these novels at our evening in the Central Library on the 6th March. Catherine will be talking about her work, writing, publishing and answering any questions. This is a free event and we are grateful to Catherine for the giving on her time.
