Writers festival and book awards

I will join a fellow author from this year’s Walkley Book Award longlist at the Sydney Writers Festival. Matt Peacock’s (‘Killer Company’) tells the story of corporate greed and expose the failure of governments and corporate regulators. We will share the stage – on May 23 – with leading business journalist Helen Dalley.

Firepower – the book – was shortlisted for the Walkley Award.

Firepower has also been shortlisted for the Blake Dawson prize for business literature. The winner of the $30,000 book prize will be announced on 27 April.

I always dreamed that being an author would be a whirlwind of events and festivals but the truth is it is my first public event and the book has been out nearly a year. So come along. You too Tim Johnston.
