Murder They Wrote

On Thursday I get the treat of hopping on a plane, winging it to Wellington and pretending to be a grown up to do a New Zealand Book Council Event called Murder They Wrote.

Actually, I'm as excited as hell, because I get to enjoy the company of Kiwi crime writers Paul Cleave and Neil Cross as we talk about the fact we make a living (well, actually, that's not entirely true) out of killing people. I think the event is a great nod towards the realisation there is a growing number of NZ crime writers who are proudly doing their thing, and doing it well.

It promises to be a lively discussion, so if you happen to be in Welly on Thursday, come along.

Enjoy, Vanda. And they'll enjoy you. Thanks, too, for heartening review of Island with Jim Mora. :)

Have a great time, Vanda.
Sounds like it will be an intersting night. I almost wish I lived in Wellington!

I can't make it along, but I'm sending an 'undercover reporter' for Crime Watch :-)

Hope it goes really well, and you get a good crowd. I understand tickets are selling pretty well.

Hopefully it is the first of many such local events showcasing Kiwi crime and thriller writers.

Feeling furiously jealous of Wellington right now....
