Dianne Yarwood

Dianne Yarwood

Dianne Yarwood worked in accounting and corporate advisory in London and Sydney. She also nurtured a love for cooking and catering. At the age of forty, with three young children, she became very ill, and her life was saved by an emergency doctor. This brush with mortality gave her the courage to do what she'd always wanted to do - write. Dianne lives in Sydney with her husband. The Wakes is her first novel. 

Jane Sullivan

Jane Sullivan

Jane Sullivan is the founder of Scholarly, an online learning platform that supports QCE English students. She is also co-founder of four hugely popular online book clubs: Rebel Readers Alliance, The Bluestockings Society, The Midnight Readers, and Birds of a Feather Book Club. Jane is an experienced English teacher, registered celebrant, book club coordinator, public speaker, online course developer, and mum to four young sons who she hopes will share her love of reading. Whether you're a parent looking for some thrilling reads for your primary aged child, or you'd like your teen to join a safe online community that offers more than just books, or you’re keen to connect with other grown-ups that love to have wholehearted conversations about books and stories, Jane and her co-captain Rebecca Sparrow have a book club for just about anyone. Jane is thrilled to bring her unique blend of biblio-zest and literary nous to the Brisbane Writers Festival.
