Bestselling author Judy Nunn to visit Kwinana

BESTSELLING author Judy Nunn will be at Kwinana Library with her 14th novel Sanctuary on Saturday, October 28 from 2pm.

The star of screen and stage was inspired to write Sanctuary when she visited Houtman Abrolhos, a chain of islands off the coast of Geraldton.

Sanctuary is about people in search of sanctuary, who land on a remote island with no idea of where they might be, only to discover that, despite the starkness of the place, it provided everything necessary for their survival.

Nunn is known for her roles on The Box, Prisoner, A Country Practice, Sons and Daughters and Home and Away.

She has enjoyed international recognition in her career as an author, with more than one million books sold worldwide, and in 2015 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.

Garnering praise from critics and readers alike, her novels take the reader to locations around Australia, and through different eras.

Judy Nunn is touring Australia, with 45 events planned over five weeks.
