Hi,  I’m  Rosemary Puddy, presenter, and producer of The Book Podcast, thank you for visiting my website.  

Each week I talk to Australian women authors of fiction and non-fiction to get the stories behind the story.

Why a podcast and why a focus on Australian women writers?

My initial inspiration came from reading about The Stella Prize, a major literary award that celebrates Australian women’s writing, and an organisation that champions cultural change.

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

I started the podcast to talk to and promote as many women authors as possible   I’ve met wonderful people along the way and read great stories from every genre.

If you have any comments or book suggestions I’d love to hear from you, my email address is thebookpodcast@gmail.com
