WEST Australian authors Anthea Hodgson and Sasha Wasley are celebrating books that champion love in their pages.

They will be at Woodvale Library on June 19 to talk about their new books The Cowgirl and True Blue as well as romance and writing.

Hodgson is a country girl from the Wheatbelt.

She worked as a radio producer in WA, NSW and Queensland before returning to Mt Hawthorn, where she lives with her husband and two children.

The Cowgirl is her second novel – a multigenerational saga exploring fractured families, atonement and moving on after death.

Wasley was born and raised in WA and now lives in Darlington with her partner and two daughters.

She has a PhD in feminist theory and is an animal lover who is enthusiastic about social and environmental issues.

Sasha Wasley.

True Blue is a quirky small town love story about an idealistic young artist, exploring the search for true love and the need to be true to yourself.

Love Between the Pages, from Dymocks Joondalup and the City of Joondalup, will run from 6pm to 7pm, followed by refreshments.

Books will be available to buy and have signed, while all attendees will receive a small gift and a chance at a door prize.

Cost is $4. Register at www.joondalup.wa.gov.au or call 9400 4751.
