Dangerous deceptions and delusions

September 29, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$10 – $17

Authors Sulari Gentill, Megan Goldin and Carolyn Morwood debate unreliable narrators, the blurring of truth and fiction, and much much more with Robyn Walton.

Headshot Sulari Gentill

Crossing the Lines (Pantera Press), Sulari Gentill’s new stand-alone murder mystery, explores what happens when the imagined becomes better than reality. Madeleine d’Leon is fixated on the story of Edward ‘Ned’ McGinnity, the hero in this crime novel. But Ned, too, is a writer and the character he can’t get out of his head is none other than Madeleine herself. Read Robyn’s Walton’s review, which first appeared in The Weekend Australian Review.

Sulari, a lawyer turned truffle grower, has written the award-winning and best-selling Rowland Sinclair Mysteries – no. 8, A Dangerous Language (Pantera Press) is due out in, October – as well as the Greek mythology adventure series, The Hero Trilogy.


Headshot Megan Goldin

Megan Goldin’s debut novel, The Girl in Kellers Way (Penguin Random House), revolves around the murder of an unknown woman near the desolate forest road of Kellers Way in small-town America. This is a novel bursting with misdirections, twists and uncertainties and a narrator who vacillates between a fugue state and jealous mania.

Megan worked as a producer and foreign correspondent for the ABC and Reuters in Asia and the Middle East. Now back in her hometown of Melbourne, she has turned her hand to fiction. Click here to read her Q&A with Robyn Walton.


Carolyn Morwood’s latest novel, Dig Two Graves (Hybrid Publishers), is part thriller, part love story. Six international artists are invited to a residency in southern Spain. One falls in lust. Two fall in love. One talks only about New York. One makes installations out of feathers and stones. And one is left for dead on the side of a mountain.

Carolyn Morwood is the author of the Eleanor Jones mysteries and Marlo Shaw crime thrillers. Her books have won both the Tom Howard Mystery Novel Contest and Sisters in Crime’s Davitt Award. Dig Two Graves is her sixth novel. Catch up with her author blog here.
