Tatiara residents will have the opportunity to meet bestselling Australian author Tricia Stringer when she visits Bordertown's Tatiara Civic Centre on October 24.

Tricia grew up on a farm in country South Australia and has spent most of her life in rural communities.

She now lives in the Copper Coast region of the Yorke Peninsula and shares her passion for the country and its people through her stories.

The visit will coincide with the release of her new novel The Model Wife, which was released in late September.

The multi-generational family story looks at what happens when real-life betrayals and struggling relationships clash with outdated ideas of what a woman should be.

She has enjoyed some massive success over the years through several rural romances and her historical saga set in South Australia's Flinders Ranges.

Queen of the Road won the Romance Writers of Australia Romantic Book of the Year award in 2013.

Riverboat Point was shortlisted for the same award in 2015 and Between the Vines in 2016.

Table for Eight was the first of her women's fiction titles - delving into life experiences, our relationships with family and friends, and what makes us the people we are, is a topic she finds "delicious".

Lunch and refreshments will be provided at the meet and greet, with tickets available through Bordertown Public Library on 8752 1473 or library@tatiara.sa.gov.au. Tickets are $20.

Percentage of the ticket sales will to go towards 'Nurses in Action - Kenya 2020', which allows nurses and allied health professionals to provide primary healthcare services to people living in remote communities.
