The end of a 40 year writing journey
Isobelle Carmody began the first of her highly acclaimed Obernewtyn Chronicles while she was just 14! The Chronicles began when Isobelle was still at high school, continued while she completed a Bachelor of Arts and then a journalism cadetship and now, as an acclaimed and award winning professional writer, the series has come to an end. A journey of 40years.
Book 1 of the 7 book series, Obernewtyn, was accepted by the first publisher she sent it to, which if you know anything about having a book published, this is nothing short of miraculous. The last book; The Red Queen, will be released on the 12th on November 2015.
This epic post-apocalyptic story has captured the hearts and minds of an enthusiastic fantasy readership of all ages. Many of the readers have been with Isobelle since the story began back in 1987. They have grown up with it in much the same way that families grew alongside Harry Potter.
Here is a link to the comic Isobelle created to express her feelings about coming to the end of the Obernewtyn journey.
