"Woman of Altitude" ABC Radio National feature on Marie Byles. Rachael Kohn's enthusiasm for Marie's life story is much appreciated and swept the interview along. At the end of the show she noted how great it would be to see a movie made of Marie's life. That is the reason I wrote the book - I was telling a producer friend about this amazing woman and she said: "Producers like to option books". So I thought, "I'll write a book." Twenty years later...! Rachael also mentions a resemblance between Marie Byles' photograph and mine. Perhaps biographers come to resemble their subjects!
