And just in case you missed it, check out Â the 2008 Stella Duffy interview on afterellen.com:
Growing up in a small town in New Zealand, out author Stella Duffy did not necessarily consider writing as a viable career choice. “It all sounds a little disingenuous,” she told AfterEllen.com, “but I promise I truly didnâ€˜t know that it was possible for someone like me to be a writer.”
Certainly, Duffy managed to figure it out. The prolific author of six novels, including Singling Out the Couples and State of Happiness, as well five mysteries that feature lesbian private investigator Saz Martin, her latest book, The Room of Lost Things, was recently longlisted for the Orange Prize.
