Australia has a very big history of incarceration. What does that mean to us? What does it mean that we came over to a country that’s not necessarily ours and filled it with white prisoners?

If you are going to write, say, fantasy – stop reading fantasy. You’ve already read too much. Read other things; read westerns, read history, read anything that seems interesting, because if you only read fantasy and then you start to write fantasy, all you’re going to do is recycle the same old stuff and move it around a bit.
– Terry Pratchett
