Most know me as award-winning fiction writer, Prue Batten - author of some twelve novels and a handful of anthologies and novellas. I mostly live in the past (I’m a hist.fict writer) - my escape from the world as it is.

I live at the bottom of the globe - no kidding. A beautiful little island off mainland Australia called Tasmania. It’s so far from the world’s sophisticated and terrible worries that most often it seems like Paradise.

I’ve posted regularly for twelve years on my (very) eclectic blog, . The style will be the same. You’ll rarely if ever see anything about the craft of writing on Knots in the String and you’ll be relieved that I’m selling nothing, just offering an introvert’s view of Life, the Universe and Everything.

Knots in the String is as free and unfettered as the wind…
