Newcastle Noir online festival - Southern Cross Crime

Last year the Newcastle Noir festival invited their first set of writers from Australia & New Zealand. Undercover cop turned award-shortlisted crime writer Nathan Blackwell (author of the fantastic THE SOUND OF HER VOICE) came all the way from Auckland, which would have made him the guest who'd travelled the furthest ever in the history of Newcastle Noir - except fellow Kiwi Vanda Symon came the whole way from Dunedin, near the bottom of the South Island!

The Newcastle Noir 2019 festival goers enjoyed that panel (which also included Australian authors Helen Fitzgerald and Rachel Amphlett, who are based in the UK) so much that the organisers "knew we just had to host another group of Antipodean authors". Jacky Collins, aka Dr. Noir, was lucky enough to hear one of this year's panelists speak at Rotorua Noir last year and she just knew you’d want to hear them too! Join Craig Sisterson as he talks to Kirsten McKenzie, Helen Fitzgerald and Charity Norman (plus some other surprise special guests).
