Ties That Bind
Sara Foster & Zoe Deleuil
Presented in association with Fremantle Arts Centre
Motherhood is fertile ground for the increasing popularity of psychological thrillers that play on the darker realities of parenting. Toxic outsiders, fractured selves and dystopian control in a dangerous world, all speak to our deepest fears as protectors. We are never so vulnerable than when the ones we love are at risk, even from those closest to them.
Best-selling author of You Don’t Know Me, Sara Foster, and debut novelist Zoe Deleuil (appearing via live stream) interrogate these most primal of ties that bind in their gripping new books, The Hush and The Night Village.
Zoe Deleuil will appear via live stream.
Sara is the bestselling author of six psychological suspense novels: You Don't Know Me, The Hidden Hours, All That is Lost Between Us, Shallow Breath, Beneath the Shadows and Come Back to Me. Her seventh novel, The Hush, was published by HarperCollins (Australia) and Blackstone (USA) in November 2021. Sara lives in Western Australia with her husband and two young daughters and is a doctoral candidate at Curtin University.
