Deadly Wisdom

Sue McPherson, Jenny Mitchell

These boys live in a small town on the Sunshine Coast and they know each other and think they know pretty much everything about what’s going on around them. They can be loud, funny, uncertain, candid. In her latest coming-of-age novel, Sue McPherson gives voice to four boys on the edge, chronicling their lives as they unfold a gripping story. Jenny Mitchell talks to Sue about Brontide, about writing about and for young readers, and about her deadly debut novel Grace Beside Me, and its development into a television series. Has being a visual artist influenced her writing?
