Greg McGee (Alix Bosco) on Radio New Zealand
This morning on Radio New Zealand, Greg McGee was interviewed by Kim Hill (listen above).
McGee is most famous amongst crime fiction fans for his two books starring middle-aged legal researcher Anna Markunas, written under the pseudonym Alix Bosco. His debut crime novel, CUT & RUN, won the inauguaral Ngaio Marsh Award for Best Crime Novel in 2010, and the sequel, SLAUGHTER FALLS, was a finalist for the award last year.
McGee is a former junior All Black and All Blacks trialist who went on to gain fame for his rugby-themed stage play, "Foreskin's Lament". He has also been an award-winning TV screenwriter, working on shows like Erebus: The Aftermath, Street Legal, and Doves of War. This year, his first novel written under his own name, LOVE AND MONEY, is released - a novel set in 1980s New Zealand, which was an intriguing time politically, socially, and culturally. McGee is now working on a biography/autobiography of All Blacks captain Richie McCaw, and will be appearing at the upcoming Auckland Writers and Readers Festival.
