Hands up who's looking for something new to read? It's summer and there's no better way to spend some relaxation time than escaping into a good book. If you can find one written by a local author, all the better.
The Adelaide Hills is full of authors in all genres. Whatever it is that you want to read, you can find it written by an author who just might also be a neighbour. It's one of the little perks of living here.
LJ Duncan has just published the third book in his dystopian series, and has already just about finished a brand new book - a crime thriller based in South Australia. He's a Hills local - in fact he lives just down the road from me. You can't get more local than that.
LJ's books, though, are at first glance not very local at all. His sot (air) ia series takes place in a dystopian future where our world is almost unrecognisable. But very soon we discover that Australia is centre stage, and not in a good way.
I caught up with LJ to talk about the process of writing and self publishing, where he gets his inspiration, and all about his books.
