Adelaide author and screenwriter, Simon Butters, has a book being launched this Saturday at Carclew. It is called The Hounded. it is about a 15 year old boy, Monty, who is ignored by his parents, bullied at school, and with a brain that’s prone to going walkabout – oh, and he sees a black dog that nobody else can see. Adolescence can be lonely at the best of times, but Simon ups the stakes in this book that is pitched at the Young Adult Fiction market. And he joins us to take us into his world of imaginary characters trying to make sense of this thing we call life.

We discuss

  • Getting into the young adult mind
  • Dealing with pimples
  • Coping with sexual awakening
  • Mental illness
  • Parenting
  • Writing books
  • Writing TV
