Last night award-winning Australian crime writer Michael Robotham spoke at Takapuna Library (another terrific event run by Helen Woodhouse and the team there). I will write a bit more about the evening later, but for now thought I would share this photo with you, as it's something of an Anzac crime fiction gathering. Going left to right:
- Myself, your humble crime fiction blogger, reviewer, and interviewer;
- Michael Robotham;
- New Zealand crime writer Stephen Ross, who has written several short stories for publications like Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine, and who was recently a finalist for both the Edgar Award and the Derringer Award in the short story category; and
- Emerging New Zealand crime writer Bev Robitai (MURDER IN THE SECOND ROW).
It was a great evening, and good to catch up not just with Michael Robotham, but some other crime fiction writers too. Have you read any of Michael, Stephen or Bev's books/stories?
