I was incredibly lucky to survive my cancer - Loraine Peck

Award-winning debut author Loraine Peck has a lot to celebrate. Not only did her first book The Second Son win the best debut crime fiction in the 2021 Ned Kelly Awards, Loraine is also a cancer survivor having had ovarian and breast cancers. She’s doing well and now advocates for more research and funding into gynaecological cancers. She’s on the board of The Australian Gynaecological Cancer Foundation. Loraine’s also got an intimate connection with crime as you’ll find out. It’s no wonder that her Sydney-based modern day crime saga is so gripping.


The Second Son is published by Text Publishing

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.
