Open invitation – launch of All Our Secrets by Jennifer Lane
October 28, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
All crime buffs are warmly invited to the Sydney launch of All Our Secrets by Australian ex-patriate crime writer, Jennifer Lane – Sunday 28 October, 2-4pm, Lazybones Lounge, 294 Marrickville Road, Marrickville. Live music will be supplied by Damien Kane and Nicole Smede.
The debut novel won the Ngaio Marsh First Novel Award in New Zealand in September. It’s just been rebirthed by Australian genre specialist, Clan Destine Press.
Lane, a short story writer, novelist, and copywriter, has spent almost half of her life outside Australia, mainly in New Zealand.
All Our Secrets is set in the small fictional NSW town of Coongahoola where hundreds of `Believers’ arrive and start to win souls. Children born in the aftermath of the town’s infamous River Picnic, begin to go missing. Local girl Gracie Barrett is the naively savvy spokesperson for her chaotic family, for the kids who are taken, and for the lurking fear that locks down the town and puts everyone under suspicion.
Award -winning Australian crime writer, Emma Viskic, says All Our Secrets is “an impeccable coming-of-age story, complete with heartbreak, secrets and murder.”
Lane’s short stories have been published in journals and magazines on both sides of the Ditch, including Southerly: Writers and their Journals (Australia), Pulp (NZ), Viola Beadleton’s Compendium (NZ) and Island (Australia).
