‘Ice-pick-sharp, packed with intrigue, action and spine-chilling suspense. Devour will keep you gripped from the very first page’ Kathryn Fox

I’m off to the SheKilda crime writers’ convention this weekend, so if you live in Melbourne or fancy getting on a plane for a fun weekend of crime, then come along! You can purchase your tickets here: http://www.shekilda.com.au/
What’s more, the Davitt Awards are on Saturday night (8th Oct) and I have been lucky enough to be nominated for Best Crime Fiction 2011. I don’t expect to win because when it comes my luck winning prizes I can count them on two fingers: a box of biscuits at a village raffle in England when I was a child (they were chocolate, so worth the ticket) and my Merit Scholarship from the University of Sydney. Oh yes, I remember now, I did in fact win a beauty pageant when I was eighteen. All very embarrassing and I think I will forget all about that. Believe it or not, I did it for the money, to help buy some university books. Anyway, wish me luck on Saturday night. More than the awards themselves I am looking forward to spending time with my fellow female crime fiction authors like Kerry Greenwood, Tara Moss, Angela Savage, Marianne Delacourt, Leigh Redhead, Katherine Howell and so many more.
