Larkin's Latest

Welcome to my blog, Larkin’s Latest. News on thriller authors and the latest crime fiction, the writing process and festivals, people I interview and exciting story locations, courses I run, and things that make me laugh!

Mystery author Adele Parks at Sutherland Library NSW, February 11

January 6, 2020

Many years ago, when I was struggling to write my first novel, I attended a writing course in Guildford in the UK. This course was run by Adele Parks and her advice made a world of difference to my writing. I have a lot to thank her for. When my first novel, The Genesis Flaw, was published we shared a bottle of bubbly and celebrated. Years have gone by and Adele’s fame has continued to grow. Imagine how excited I was when her Australian publisher and Sisters in Crime Australia, asked me to do an ‘in conversation’ event with Adele for her new book, Lies Lies Lies – a suburban noir novel that explores the darkest corners of a relationship in freefall in a mesmerising tale of marriage and secrets. It will grab you from the very first page and you just won’t want to put the book down!

I have no doubt the evening at Sutherland Library NSW will be a blast. So please come along.

Very excited to be working with Bloodhound Books who is publishing my new thriller PREY in April 2020.
Four murders. Four countries. One terrible secret.
More news to come soon and thank you to everyone for their support writing it, especially to Lynne at Mankwe Wildlife Reserve in South Africa. I couldn’t have done it without her.
