She co-wrote the bestselling historical novel, The Water Diviner, based on the script for the film of the same name starring Russell Crowe.

One of four books that changed the author, as shared at the Sydney Morning Herald:
Colleen McCullough

Nobody had to convince me that history was fun and exciting. But Colleen McCullough showed me that characters and stories could be recruited from dusty academic tomes and recast in dynamic and highly entertaining novels. Her settings are evocative, the plotlines riveting and historical detail painstakingly researched. Her achievements encouraged me to be brave in my aspirations and to see the value in the knowledge I've accumulated as an archaeologist and historian.
