Last week I had the pleasure of organising a Meet the Author event at Koorliny Arts Centre, with Perth author Bevan McGuiness as our guest speaker. Bevan turned out to be a fantastic speaker, sharing his journey to becoming published with a liberal dash of self-deprecating humour and frankness.
“I’m Bevan and I’m a nerd,” he said, describing his fascination with science as a child and his fondness for role-playing games at university.
“I still play Dungeons and Dragons with the same people…which is kind of sad, really.”
McGuiness has written two fantasy trilogies – The Eleven Kingdoms and Triumvirate – and is working on another, as well as two children’s fantasy series.
