If you have questions about cross-genre writing or any of these authors works that you’d like me to ask at the panel, please comment below. And be on the lookout for the link to join the discussion live on Thursday the 22nd

  1. An excellent author once told me that the principles of good writing can be applied anywhere and that a good author can turn his hand to any genre and that the only obstacle to this is marketing. Would anyone agree or disagree?

  2. Hi, I might not make the panel but I wanted to ask – do you think the ability or the inclination to write cross genre is related to a personality type or trait and if so, what is it?

  3. Going to miss this one, too. Alas.

    Rod, what were the challenges going from film making to writing? How did you find your skills translating to other media?

    Marianne, I intuit the Australian F/SF scene is smaller and more intense than elsewhere. How has your greater engagement with the SF world as your work has extended beyond Australia affected your relationship with genre?

    Emma, Bath, London and Oxford are vividly invoked places in your fiction. What other cities and places would you like to set some of your fiction in?
