I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Cessnock Library last week, to chat about my writing, crime, and Harry's Quest.
It was a small crowd of about a dozen (that winter weather doesn't help), but were they lively?! Hell, yes! Susan Davy (the Events Manager at the library - and thank you so much for the invitation, Sue) had to pull me up for being out of time at the hour and a half mark.
Yes, bucket loads of great chat about crime, and corruption, and my writing.
And just about everyone bought a Harry book. Bonus.
It was great, too, that some of the audience were people who had come along to my first talk at Cessnock a couple of years back. They wanted to come back, and that is the greatest compliment.
Love you, Cessnock. I'll be back soon.
Just a blog to showcase this superb photograph of my Harry books. And isn't Harry well and truly in his element here? Gun, booze, smokes, cuffs. Just needs a naked lady to round it out. This could easily be Harry's desk, but it's not Sydney, rather over the other side of the Pacific Ocean.
American crime writer, and fellow Switchblade veteran, Danny Sophabmisay, won the Harry books in the recent competition I ran in conjunction with Switchblade.
And he paid me back with this truly fantastic picture - Danny, you're a champion, mate.
I just love it, and so had to share it with you all. I've added it to the "Works" page on my website as well.
Now I just hope Danny enjoys the books!
Bringing you hard-boiled and noir tales of crime and corruption. And various related opinions!
