3.15pm - 5.15pm: How to write a winning Scarlet Stiletto story with Professor Christina Lee
Christina has twice won the Scarlet Stiletto Award and has been on the judging panel ever since (and has therefore read a lot of Scarlet Stiletto entries!!) In the 1990s, she co-wrote and published two crime novels, Unable by Reason of Death and Not in Single Spies set in the grim surroundings of academia in Melbourne. Christina is currently finishing a lively story of crime, grime and redemption, set amidst the drag queens, hipsters, morgue attendants and contract killers of Brisbane’s Fortitude Valley.
