When standard romance and standard thrillers fail to get your heart racing, the obvious solution is to combine them and try thriller romance Brooke Sivendra style. That’s just what Adelaide author, Brooke Sivendra, does with her novels. Brooke’s leading man, James Thomas, is a man of mystery with a heart of gold and tonight we learn more about him and Brooke’s life as a writer.
This week, the SA Drink Of The Week is from Brian Croser.
Nigel will try to stump the audience with IS IT NEWS on the topic of books and bookshops.
In 100 Weeks Ago we relive something truly historical, with Allison Russell from History SA.
And Voodoo Tattoo, Brett Monten’s band, brings us home in the musical pilgrimage.
