SPIRITS OF THE GHAN
Bestselling Australian author Judy Nunn AM has based many of her novels in remote locations across Australia. When travelling on The Ghan three years ago with husband, author Bruce Venables, she was instantly inspired.
Spirits of the Ghan tells the tale of two people involved in completing The Ghan: Jess Manning, an indigenous Australian whose role as negotiator between the Elders and the railway has earnt her respect amongst all involved with the project, and Matthew Witherton, a senior surveyor overseeing the construction of the line. When their paths finally cross, their respective cultures collide to reveal a mystery that demands attention, and could well affect the completion of the mighty railway.
JUDY NUNN AM
Judy Nunn’s career has been long, illustrious and multifaceted. After combining her internationally successful acting career with scriptwriting for television and radio, Judy decided in the 90s to turn her hand to prose.
Her first three novels, The Glitter Game, Centre Stage and Araluen, set respectively in the worlds of television, theatre and film, became instant bestsellers, and the rest is history, quite literally in fact.
In 2015 Judy was made a Member of the Order of Australia for her ‘significant service to the performing arts as a scriptwriter and actor of stage and screen, and to literature as an author’.
