Award winning authors Jack Heath and Sulari Gentill

Jack Heath is the pen name of a bestselling and award-winning author. He has written twenty action-packed books for kids and one disturbing crime novel for adults. His books have been translated into several languages and optioned for film and television.


Sulari Gentill – Author of the award-winning and best-selling Rowland Sinclair Mysteries, the Greek mythology adventure series The Hero Trilogy. and commercial literary novel Crossing the Lines.

Award-winning author Sulari Gentill set out to study astrophysics, graduated in law, and then abandoned her legal career to write books instead of contracts.

Born in Sri Lanka, Sulari learned to speak English in Zambia, grew up in Brisbane and now lives in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains of NSW where, with her historian husband, she grows French black truffles, cares for a variety of animals and raises two wild colonial boys. Sulari also paints, but only well enough to know she should write, preferably in her pyjamas.

Sulari’s session at the festival will be about what it’s like living with an writer. What if that writer specialised in murder? Join Sulari Gentill author of the wonderful Rowland Sinclair series and Crossing the Lines and her family as we find out what it’s like living with a ‘Murder in the Family’.

The festival will also include an interactive panel discussion with local identities including John Blay (The Bundian Way) and Frank Rodwell (Townships and campsites built during the construction scheme)

Meet the Author – Noel Braun

A fund raiser for the
Snowy Mountains Readers Writers Festival

Noel Braun embarked on a spiritual quest of self-discovery after the suicide of his wife Maris. He decided to walk two of the more popular routes of the Camino de Santiago, which is described in his earlier book

“The Day Was Made for Walking”.

Two more Camino journeys followed, but different routes were taken. Woven into his spiritual and emotional journey are fascinating stories of the people he meets. His most recent book

“I Guess I’ll Just Keep on Walking”

is a sequel to his earlier book where the spiritual and physical merge with the ancient and the modern. Noel undertook these pilgrimages in his late 70’s and early 80’s. Last year at the age of 84, he embarked on a fifth journey, the subject of another book.
