Outrageously entertaining autobiographical short stories.

Marieke Hardy, former child actor, is a regular member of the panel on the First Tuesday Book Club as well as a screenwriter, columnist, blogger, radio host, scriptwriter, author, and in her own words, hedonist.

In addition to her regular column for ABC The Drum, she is a senior contributor to Frankie Magazine and The Age.

Marieke’s recent book, You’ll Be Sorry When I’m Dead, is a collection of outrageously entertaining and deeply revealing autobiographical short stories.

Confessional, voyeuristic, painful, hilarious and heartfelt, You’ll Be Sorry When I’m Dead reveals the acerbic wit, unflinching gaze and razor-sharp insight of a writer at the height of her powers - or the unhinged fantasies of a dangerous mind with not enough to do.

If you want to find out what all the fuss is about, come and meet Marieke over afternoon tea, in conversation with Noosa Longweekend regular Peter Thompson, former presenter of ABC’s Talking Heads. It promises to be interesting…
