Very proud: L.A. Larkin top 10 female Australian crime fiction author says AFR

August 3, 2016

Feeling very proud at the moment. A friend drew my attention to an article in the Australian Financial Review which lists Australia’s top 10 female crime fiction authors, and I am over the moon to be cited as one of them! And I’m in the best of company: wonderful authors and fellow members of Sisters In Crime like Sulari Gentill, Kathryn Fox and Candice J Fox. This really has made my day. I am sure my new series character, Olivia Wolfe, would be delighted too!

I do have some exciting events coming up and one of them is facilitating an interview with crime thriller author Candice J Fox in Sydney on 11 August at Double Bay Library. Hope to see you there.

Booktopia Podcast with Sarah McDuling

August 1, 2016

I love this podcast interview with Sarah McDuling from Booktopia, in which we discuss my latest action and psychological thriller, Devour. We talk about Antarctica and why is it the prefect location for a sinister crime, the changing pace of the novel, about Olivia Wolfe who is the central character, and, the enigmatic Russian, Vitaly Yushkov.

The book’s opening is ‘a cracking beginning to what will be an amazing series,’ says McDuling. She goes on, ‘What I really liked is there’s a whole section in Antarctica which is like a psychological thriller … really intense … this part of the book is the eye of the storm … and then when you come out of it you are thrown into an action thriller… action, action, quite scary, part and then more action.’

Daily Review: Action, intrigue and fear Antarctic-style

July 25, 2016

Feeling blessed to have my psychological thriller, Devour, in the Daily Review! Even includes the first chapter of the thriller novel.

Here is a sneak peak of Chapter 2 where you meet Olivia Wolfe, investigative journalist and the central character:

Olivia Wolfe’s head slams into the passenger window, dislodging the scarf that conceals her Western features, as the dented Toyota Corolla – Kabul’s favourite car – bounces out of a pot hole. Hastily covering her head, she fails to notice she is being watched by an old, bearded Mesher in a black turban standing at the roadside, who raises a mobile phone to his ear.
‘Can’t we go any faster?’ she asks Shinwari.
