Crime writer Cat Connor to appear at Upper Hutt Library tomorrow

Upper Hutt crime writer Cat Connor, author of a series of thrillers starring SSA Ellie Conway of the FBI's Delta team, will be making an appearance at the Upper Hutt Library tomorrow as part of New Zealand Book Month activities happening up and down the country.

The event is in the Library's Rotary Lounge at 6.30pm.

Connor's debut thriller, KILLERBYTE, introduced Gabrielle "Ellie" Conway, an FBI Agent "who challenges the rules with her attitude and her sense of the ridiculous", and was a finalist in the 2010 EPIC Awards (electronic publishing awards). Both KILLERBYTE and its sequel TERRORBYTE were top ten bestsellers on Mobipocket.

KILLERBYTE was voted No. 3 in eBookNewser's Top Ten eBooks. TERRORBYTE was rated one of the Top 10 thriller 'Best Reads for 2010' by the Preditors & Editors™ Readers' Poll. So Connor certainly seems to have plenty of reader support!

Connor's fourth Ellie Conway novel, FLASHBYTE, will be officially released on 17 March.

In FLASHBYTE, Conway is woken by the news that she’d been strangled in a parking lot. The incident escalates into a week from hell with bank robberies, snipers, truly bizarre packages, and more reports of her death. "What Conway did not expect was old friends (good and bad) reappearing, see-sawing with more than the usual amount of kickass energy. Just so Delta A didn’t get bored, the universe tossed in an extraordinary rendition, lost memory, and a visit to the past that anchored the present."
