Quintette of Questions: Angela Kamerer-White

Quintette asks writers five quick questions. This week’s interview is with:

Angela Kamerer-White

1. What’s the name of your latest book – and how hard was it to pick a title?

My first book is called The Band That Changed Her Life. It was originally titled 15 Grooms but I felt that was too obvious and didn’t really express the story well enough, since music plays a part in the story.

This time around it wasn’t all that difficult, but then I tend to have the title in my head before the story.

2. If you could choose anyone from any time period, who would you cast as the leads in your latest book?

Well, there is no main lead but I would love it if the band Super Junior could play the characters they inspired. A young Elizabeth Taylor or Viviene Leigh would be awesome too, but honestly, if this ever goes to the screen I want to have a multi-ethnic, and racial cast with new and undiscovered talent.

3. What five words best describe your story?

International poetic romantic musical adventure.

4. Who is your favourite fictional couple or team?

Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson

5. What song always makes you cry? 

Our ‘Love is Like a Storybook’ story from The Princess Bride

though ‘Sorry Sorry’ by Super Junior was the catalyst that brought this book into existence and ‘Bloodstream’ by Stateless was played on repeat during the writing of it.

About The Band That Changed Her Life

They had risked it all for fame, but what about love?

The largest boyband in Asia collides with 15 American fangirls that change their lives forever.

Love takes courage and gives it right back. Will you take the risk?

‘Jane’ wins The Body in the Library category at the Scarlet Stiletto Awards

This year I entered the Sisters in Crime Australia Scarlet Stiletto Awards for the very first time. The awards, hosted by Sisters in Crime and a number of generous sponsors, are for crime stories written by Australian women and with female protagonists.

I am absolutely thrilled to have received the Body in the Library first place with my ghost story, ‘Jane’.

An Australian Literature research student meets a ghost in a state-of-the-art private library on a remote bush property. She tries to unravel the mystery of the ghost’s origins while the dangers of the present, both human and natural, loom.

The awards night was fabulous! Most of the 26 shortlisted authors (out of 186 entrants) were there, some coming from interstate. Jane Clifton was a marvellous MC, and did a fantastic interview with the ever-lovely Sigrid Thornton (with whom she co-starred in the iconic TV series Prisoner).

Congratulations to all my fellow short-listed authors, and category winners! Huge thanks to Sisters in Crime and the award sponsors, especially the fabulous Athenaeum Library!

A big thank you too to Lindy Cameron, who looked me in the eye when I told her I’d never written for the awards and instructed me, in no uncertain terms, that this year I had to enter.

Books and Publishing has a full list of the winning entries.
