Killer Content with Emily Webb
Creating a main character who juggles motherhood and police work - Dinuka McKenzie
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.

The Torrent is published by Harper Collins Australia.
