Rudyard Kipling had a sister. Who knew? Prize-winning author Mary Hamer will talk about the process of research and writing that went into her novel. She will introduce and read passages of about a page and a half in length, explaining what she hoped to show readers. She will then take questions from the audience.
Ever since Rudyard Kipling lit her imagination as a child, Mary had wanted to write about him. Later, she realised that the story of his sister, Trix, was just as compelling. It was visiting the places where they lived, from Mumbai to Cape Town, that brought them closer to her. In Naulakha, the house Kipling built in Vermont, Mary slept in his bedroom and soaked in his own bath. For the intimate story she had to tell, she decided it had to be fiction. Kipling & Trix is her fifth book and first novel. www.mary-hamer.com
