Armchair Author host Adele WardÂ will interviewÂ author Patricia Averbach, whose debut novelÂ Painting BridgesÂ was released recently. Patricia workshopped this novel in Second Life, so virtual worlds have played an important part in her success as a writer. In November her debut poetry collection will be published as a prize for winning the International Lumen/Camden Poetry Competition judged by acclaimed American poet Anne Stevenson, and she will read an extract from the novel and also the winning poem on the show.
