Today on the podcast I have author Janet Clare speaking about her debut novel ‘Time is the Longest Distance’ This is the story of an American woman, a New Yorker, who ends up in Australia tracking down her estranged father. It also follows them on a strange and awkward long hike through the outback as she tries to get know him. It explores what can happen when you take people far outside of their comfort zones and stick them together in the middle of nowhere. On today’s episode we talk about how she came to set her story in Australia and how she captured the landscape and mood so well. We also talk about how she came to writing fiction late in life and her career before she started writing full time.
