Adventure Writing with Brian Falkner

Although disguised as fiction, many of Brian Falkner’s real life adventures have found their way into his books – from skimming the ocean in a tiny sea-plane to being attacked by a swarm of wasps. Couple these experiences with a bright imagination and you've got a recipe for action-packed writing. Learn the stories behind the stories as Brian discusses his favourite books, The Real Thing, The Flea Thing and The Super Freak.
