Today saw the publication of my essay, "Real Crime to Crime Fiction: An Aussie Ex-Cop Turned Crime Novelist", in the Summer 2019 edition of Mystery Readers Journal.
It contains a good few snippets about my writing motivations, background to my fiction, and some reading preferences. If you want to know a bit more about me as a crime writer, feel free to have a read of the essay. You'll even read about one of the creepier moments I experienced as a detective.
Here is the essay (as an excerpt from the journal) in the file below.
Looking forward to my second author event in Los Angeles. I'm honoured to be lining up with local crime writing talent for the legendary Noir at the Bar event. Many thanks to Eric Beetner, an author whose work I love, for the invitation to join him and the noir crew.
If you're in LA this coming Sunday evening, 07 July, come and join us for noir and drinks at the Mandrake Bar.
Bringing you hard-boiled and noir tales of crime and corruption. And various related opinions!
