HEAT and the Writing and Society Research Group at the University of 
Western Sydney present an evening with New Zealand writer, Elizabeth 
Knox, in conversation with her sister, Dr. Sara Knox. The session 
will be chaired by Ivor Indyk, and there will be lively, 
wide-ranging discussion about why Elizabeth writes fantasy; the 
differences between writing for adult and young-adult audiences; the 
eccentricities of family and other influences that have shaped her 

Elizabeth Knox is an award-winning NZ novelist, whose sensual prose 
holds its readers with the depth and detail of its characterisation. 
Born in Wellington, and a graduate in English from Victoria 
University, Elizabeth's seven novels include the internationally 
successful The Vintner's Luck, which won the Deutz Medal for Fiction 
in the 1999 Montana New Zealand Book Awards, and the Tasmania 
Pacific Region Prize. In 2000 Elizabeth Knox was made a laureate of 
the Arts Foundation of New Zealand, and in 2002 she was made an 
Officer of the Order of Merit. The Vintner's Luck is published in 
seven languages and is being made into a film by Niki Caro, director 
of  Whalerider. Daylight was short-listed for Best Book in the South 
Pacific & South East Asian Region of the 2000 Commonwealth Writers 
Prize. Elizabeth Knox's latest book is Dreamhunter. Part Two of the 
Dreamhunter Duet, Dreamquake, will be published in May 2006.
