Author encounter: Sarah Thornton@Geelong Library

September 18, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm


Everyone is welcome to hear Sarah Thornton talk about her debut crime novel, Lapse, to Sister in Crime national co-convenor, Tara Mitchell.

In Lapse, high-flying city lawyer Clementine Jones ends up living like a hermit in small-town Katinga, coaching the local footy club, after a momentary lapse brought her world crashing down. She’s supposed to be lying low, but here she is, with her team on the cusp of their first premiership in fifty years—and the whole bloody town counting on her, cheering her on – but then the dark violence just below the town’s surface threatens to erupt…

Sarah Thornton cast off the lines to her law career not long after being awarded Australian Corporate Lawyer of the Year in 2016. She now lives with her husband aboard a 43-foot sailing catamaran and took up writing novels as a way to liberate her imagination after twenty years in the structured confines of legal and corporate life.
