Afternoon at the pub with 5 crime fiction authors?

Fancy a relaxing afternoon chatting to 5 crime fiction authors over a beer one Sunday in October? Join me and authors Nigel Bartlett, Candice Fox, Bruce McCabe and A.B. Patterson on Sunday 23 October at 3pm, at the Australian Youth Hotel, Sydney. Bookings through Eventbrite here.

Here are brief bios on the author’s joining me:

publications in Australia. In 2012 he completed a research masters in creative writing at the

case. Bruce lived in Kenya, Fiji and Japan before returning to Sydney, where he is
now based.

A. B. Patterson is an Australian writer who knows first-hand about corruption,
power, crime and sex. He was a Detective Sergeant in the WA Police, working in

Characters to die for

October 3, 2016

A night of dark plots and twisted characters – an event with James Phelan and L.A. Larkin at Readings, Carlton.

Action thrillers are often associated with heart-pounding, high stakes plots, but it is the central characters that win our hearts and make us want to read the next book in the series. Larkin and Phelan will discuss how they create engaging characters and what is involved in writing for a book series. The authors have very different protagonists – ex-CIA operative Jed Walker and British investigative journalist, Olivia Wolfe – and they will discuss the creative challenges this presents.

This is a free event but please book here so that Readings can cater for the right numbers.

Date and time: Wed 19th Oct 2016, 6:30 pm.

Location: Readings Carlton — 309 Lygon St, Carlton, Victoria, 3053.

June 30, 2016

Join me and crime fiction author Marianne Delacourt at Brisbane Square Library on 5 August 6-7 pm.

We will discuss creating dynamic female central characters in crime and thriller fiction. In a genre that often depicts women as victims or side-kicks, we talk about why and how we are turning the tables. How do our lead characters’ lives reflect those of the authors?

This event is ideal for crime fiction and thriller lovers, aspiring writers and anyone who will enjoy an evening with two talented and highly entertaining authors.

Books will be available for purchase on the night, or bring your copy from home to be signed. Find out more about the authors here at www.mariannedepierres.com and www.lalarkin.com
