Graeme Simsion's Research Secrets

Australian romantic comedy author, Graeme Simsion, spoke to me about how you can't beat real-life experience as the best research resource.




His first two novels are, The Rosie Project and its sequel The Rosie Effect published by Penguin Books. His hero is forty-one-year-old geneticist, Don Tillman, has never been on a second date and then he meets Rosie, gets married and moves to New York.

His most recent novel is The Best of Adam Sharp also published by Penguin in the UK. This novel explores a re-kindled relationship and its consequences.

Graeme advocates that when doing research writers should talk to people and not for the facts but for the stories behind the facts. These snippets of information is what can make your writing great.

The feature on Graeme and his Research Secrets is out now in the latest issue of Writers Forum.
