Creating a main character who juggles motherhood and police work - Dinuka McKenzie

Ep. 51
Australian debut author Dinuka McKenzie burst on to the crime fiction scene early in 2022 with her police procedural The Torrent. What I really like about The Torrent is that the main character Detective Sergeant Kate Miles is heavily pregnant, in her last week of work before maternity leave and has a pretty stable home life - not the usual circumstances for a police officer that we traditionally see in crime fiction.In this episode you’ll hear Dinuka talk about her path to publication, how her own life inspired the creation of DS Kate Miles and the crime author she absolutely loves.First, we find out more about Dinuka.You can follow Dinuka on Twitter @DinukaMcKenzieThe Torrent is published by Harper Collins Australia.Your host is Emily WebbFollow Emily on Twitter https://twitter.com/emilybwebbInstagram https://instagram.com/emilywebbcrimeTikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@emilywebbcrimeFacebook facebook.com/emily.webb.podcaster.authorWebsite: https://www.emilywebbcrime.com/Emily is the author of:Suburban True Crime: Cases you’ll never forget and some you’ve never heard ofAngels of Death: Doctors and Nurses Who KillListen to Killer Content onApple Podcasts https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/killer-content-with-emily-webb/id1539843342Google Podcasts https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9yc3MuYWNhc3QuY29tL2NyaW1lLWZpY3Rpb24tZnJpZGF5Spotify https://open.spotify.com/show/1gxxA7IcoTIcarh6sPgbEI

True crime inspires gripping historical fiction

Season 1, Ep. 50
Rebecca Griffiths is a British author whose books had me staying up way too late…which is always a reliable sign of a great read.Rebecca spoke to me from her home in rural Wales and we chatted about her books, finding confidence in her creativity and her formative life experience that has meant she isn’t afraid to go to some difficult places with her writing.This conversation discusses topics of Rebecca’s lived experience of abuse when she was a child. As well as some details of the crimes of the killers who feature in her books.And when we recorded the conversation, it was before Rebecca’s book The Hidden Child was released and you’ll hear us refer to it as The Body on the Moor. The title changed on publication.If you have been affected by anything discussed in this episode you can contact:Lifeline (Australia) 13 11 14Samaritans (UK) 116 123More info:10 Rillington Place Murdershttps://metro.co.uk/2016/11/30/chilling-pictures-of-the-real-10-rillington-place-before-it-was-demolished-to-erase-its-gruesome-past-6292178/The Moors Murderers Ian Brady and Myra Hindleyhttps://www.crimeandinvestigation.co.uk/article/how-ian-brady-and-myra-hindley-the-moors-murderers-were-caughtYou can follow Rebecca on Twitter @rebeccagriffit7 and GoodreadsYour host is Emily WebbFollow Emily on Twitter https://twitter.com/emilybwebbInstagram https://instagram.com/emilywebbcrimeTikTok: https://www.tiktok.com/@emilywebbcrimeFacebook facebook.com/emily.webb.podcaster.authorWebsite: https://www.emilywebbcrime.com/Emily is the author of:Suburban True Crime: Cases you’ll never forget and some you’ve never heard ofAngels of Death: Doctors and Nurses Who Kill

The search for true home - Garry Disher

Ep. 47
An interview with Garry Disher has been on my Wishlist for so long so I am thrilled I got the chance to speak to him. Garry has written more than 50 books across different genres but he’s best known for his searing crime fiction. Garry was writing crime set in Australia for decades, long before rural or outback noir became popular or had the status that it does now. My entry into Garry’s writing was the brilliant Bitter Wash Road, which introduced us to his character Constable Paul Hirschausen, a cop exiled to a rural community where he’s an outsider. There’s three books in the Hirsch series and Garry’s currently working on the next one. His new book The Way it is Now introduces us to cop Charlie Deravin who is back in his coastal country hometown where the mystery of his mother’s disappearance 20 years before still hangs heavily.The Way it is Now is published by Text Publishing.
