Season 1 features the best Australian writers talking about their craft. The common thread is their success: they are at the top of their fields.

The Garret is a literary podcast by writers for writers about writers. In this episode, we interview Graeme Simsion Jordan.
If you are a writer, you won't want to miss this interview.
Graeme Simsion is a Melbourne-based business consultant and writer of short stories, plays, screenplays and three non-fiction books - The Rosie Project, The Rosie Effect, and The Best of Adam Sharp.
The Rosie Project began life as a screenplay, winning the Australian Writers Guild/Inscription Award for Best Romantic Comedy before being adapted into a novel. It went on to win the 2012 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an unpublished manuscript and has since been sold around the world to over forty countries where it has become an international bestseller. Sony Pictures have optioned the film rights with Graeme contracted to write the script. The Rosie Project also won the 2014 ABIA for Best General Fiction Book, and was ultimately awarded Australian Book of the Year for 2014.
The sequel, The Rosie Effect, was released in 2014 to acclaim. In 2016 Graeme published The Best of Adam Sharp.
Graeme was a business consultant and data modelling expert before he decided a career in writing would suit him better. He has fascinating - and very specific - insights into what makes a writer, and why writing should be regarded as a profession.
