Christian White: Wild Place

In Episode 40, Christian White chats about his latest novel, Wild Place, plus his secret to writing an epic plot twist that will have all of your readers fooled - just like he did in The Wife and the Widow!

Christian White is a thriller author and screenwriter, whose credits include the feature film Relic and the Netflix series Clickbait.


His debut novel The Nowhere Child won the Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for Best Unpublished Manuscript. Since publication it’s been shortlisted for major awards including the Australian Book Industry Awards General Fiction Book of the Year. It’s also been translated into many languages, and is now being adapted for screen.


Since then, Christian’s gone on to release The Wife and the Widow, which became an instant bestseller, and most recently Wild Place which if you’re a fan of Christian’s first two books, does not disappoint.


Christian White has been called the "Master of Misdirection", and I couldn't agree more. In Episode 40 of the Writers off the Page podcast, we talk about that plot twist...of course I'm referring to the massive plot twist in The Wife and the Widow. Don't worry, no spoilers here, but we do talk about how it came to be and Christian share his tips on how you too can write a plot twist that will completely shock your readers.
