BUNDABERG'S aspiring writers will have the opportunity to get inside the head of an award-winning and internationally published novelist next week.

Marianne de Pierres said she was delighted to come to Bundaberg as part of WriteFest 2012 and was looking forward to passing on her tricks of the trade.

"It's really nice to be able to share my craft with other authors and provide them with some tips to save them at lot of heartbreak and time," she said.

Starting her professional writing career in 1999, Ms de Pierres writes across a number of genres including science fiction, fantasy, young adult and crime.

Fans of her crime series, Tara Sharp, will know her better as her pseudonym Marianne Delacourt.

Based in Brisbane, Ms de Pierres chose to pursue a writing career after the birth of her third child.

"I'd always been interested in writing, but when I was younger I didn't apply myself or have the self discipline," she said.

Since then she has wasted no time, publishing Nylon Angel in 2004 and a further 14 books to date.

Ms de Pierres will present a free talk at Bundaberg Library on Thursday, May 17 from 6.30-8pm, as well as two workshops at WriteFest on May 19.

Bookings to attend the library talk are essential. To book, phone 4130 4140.
