If you're in Perth this weekend why don't you come see me at the Perth Writers Festival. Fortunately I'll be surrounded by big name talents so I won't be under too much pressure to be funny or interesting. This is the programme listing for my stuff:
The new novels of KA Bedford, Lenny Bartulin and Adrian McKinty have a Chandleresque air to them. They look at the legacy of noir fiction and its effect on their writing with Grant Stone.
Chair: Grant Stone
Undercroft Sat 27 Feb, 2 – 3pm
Crime Does Pay
Crime writers Colin McLaren and Adrian McKinty consider the interplay between real life and the imagination in the world of crime fiction.
Chair: Deborah Kennedy
Uni Club Theatre Sat 27 Feb, 5 – 6pm
Though crime fiction is sometimes accused of being formulaic, it often features complex characters who grow over a series of books. Michael Koryta, Adrian McKinty and Irvine Welsh talk about the complexity of character.
Chair: John Harman
Uni Club Theatre Sun 28 Feb, 12.30 – 1.30pm
I'll also be doing an event on March 2nd when I'm back in Melbourne at the North Fitzroy Star hotel at 6 PM with Michael Koryta, Marianne Delacourt & Rebecca James.
