Local Author Nalini Singh was interviewed yesterday (21-Feb) on Afternoons with Jim Mora on Radio New Zealand National. The info blurb for the interview reads as follows:
“Nalini Singh, who’s one of New Zealand’s best kept secrets. A virtually unknown writer here ’til mid-last year, but Nalini Singh has been on the New York Times bestseller list frequently and her latest paranormal novel – Archangel’s Consort is sitting at number 8 this week.”
Of course, Nalini has been well known to the local fan community since well before “mid-last year”. The interview can be streamed from here or can be downloaded as an mp3 from here. The interview is just under 18 minutes long.
