For the November Murder Monday, Sisters in Crime’s Jacq Ellem talks to Patricia Wolf, author of the international bestselling debut novel, Outback. Her second DS Walker novel, Paradise, came out in May, and a third one is in the offing.
Patricia grew up in Queensland, Australia. She likes whisky and strong coffee, busy cities, surf beaches and wild places which doesn’t quite square with now living in Berlin.
Nicki Thornton, the award-winning children’s writer from Oxfordshire, England, is our guest author for the August Murder Monday. She spoke about her crime craft to Jacq Ellem, bibliophile, copywriter, occasional broadcaster, award-winning podcaster, and a member of the new Tasmanian chapter. Nicki’s latest crime novel is the wonderfully-titled The Poisoned Pie Mystery.
Our guest author for the June Murder Monday is the US best-selling author, T J Newman. T J, a former book seller and flight attendant based in Arizona, has been flying high since her debut novel, Falling, became a publishing sensation and debuted at number two on the New York Times bestseller list. She spoke about her crime craft to Jacq Ellem, bibliophile, copywriter, occasional broadcaster, award-winning podcaster, and a member of the new Tasmanian chapter.
April’s guest is Vikki Petraitis, true crime queen turned international podcast sensation and award-winning crime fiction author. Vikki has a long association with crime, starting with The Phillip Island Murder in 1994. Since then, she has written another 17 true crime books, but last year, she crossed a genre line with her PhD novel, The Unbelieved, which won the inaugural Allen & Unwin Crime Fiction Award and was published in August to much acclaim.
For the latest Murder Monday, Jacq Ellem spoke to author Tansy Rayner Roberts who crimes crime under her pen name Livia Day – they’re cozy, witty, and wickedly funny, Tasmanian murder mysteries. Her five crime novels include A Trifle Dead, Drowned Vanilla, Keep Calm and Kill the Chef, Dyed & Buried, and her most recent title, Drop Dead in Red which features scones, murder, and baby goats.
