About me


I’m Rosemary Puddy I live on the beautiful Northern Beaches of Sydney and have a vast collection of books, most of which I have read.

In 2016 I had a brief stint on community radio with a Friday bookclub program, due to many factors I decided to present and produce my own podcast.

The Book Podcast is inspired by the The Stella Prize, a major literary award that celebrates Australian women’s writing and an organisation that champions cultural change.

The prize is named after one of Australia’s iconic female authors, Stella Maria Sarah ‘Miles’ Franklin, and was awarded for the first time in 2013. Both nonfiction and fiction books by Australian women are eligible for entry.

The Stella Prize seeks to:

  • recognise and celebrate Australian women writers’ contribution to literature.
  • bring more readers to books by women and thus increase their sales
  • provide role models for schoolgirls and emerging female writers

So please join me to discover your next great read from the talented Australian women writers of fiction and non-fiction.
