Description

Authors Emma Viskic, Anna Snoekstra and J M Green discuss how to triumph over ‘second novel syndrome’ and much more with Maggie Baron. This event will be followed by the AGM.

Emma Viskic's second novel, And Fire Came Down (Bonnier Publishing), again features Caleb Zelic, a deaf private detective. When a young woman is killed after pleading for his help in sign language, Caleb is determined to find out who she was. And the trail leads straight to his hometown, Resurrection Bay. Emma’s critically acclaimed debut novel, Resurrection Bay, won an unprecedented three Davitt Awards in 2016 (Best Adult Novel, joint Best Debut Crime Book and Readers’ Choice), as well as the 2016 Ned Kelly Award for Best First Fiction. She has also won two of Australia’s premier crime fiction short story awards: the Ned Kelly S D Harvey Award and the New England Thunderbolt Prize.

Anna Snoekstra's Little Secrets (Harlequin, October) is a stand-alone thriller that started out as a short story for the Scarlet Stiletto Awards a few years ago, but it kept growing and growing until it was too long. The story weaves together a small town reeling in the wake of the tragic death of a young boy in an arson attack, an aspiring journalist desperate for a story and little dolls full of secrets. Anna's debut novel, Only Daughter, has been optioned in the US by Universal Pictures.

JM Green's Too Easy (Scribe Publications), is her second novel to feature Stella Hardy, a wisecracking social worker with a thirst for social justice, good laksa and alcohol. This time, she’s battling outlaw bikie gangs, corrupt cops and a powerful hunger for pani puri. J M Green’s debut novel,Good Money, was shortlisted for a 2016 Ned Kelly Award, Sisters in Crime’s Davitt Award for Best Debut Crime Book and the 2014 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an Unpublished Manuscript.

Maggie Baron is a former forensic scientist who worked in the area of trace evidence analysis. A passionate crime reader, she brings a strong analytical perspective to the craft of writing and in 2015 became Sisters in Crime’s inaugural President.
