Launching the book

Last week a lovely crowd of friends and well-wishers came along to Readings Carlton to help launch Blood Witness. The evening was hosted by Alan Brough and went fantastically well. Alan was a wonderful interviewer, his questions were both wry and insightful and we covered a range of topics such as:

-  my shock as a child when I read William Golding's Lord of the Flies and discovered it was not the boy's own adventure story I thought it would be

- Melbourne being a perfect setting for a crime novel as its the kind of city that can only really be explored at street level

- the bane of the contemporary thriller writer being the mobile phone which puts characters in constant, easy contact with one another

Thanks to all those who came along and for making the evening a success. It was great to see so many familiar faces and I felt that we managed to give the book a deserving send off. It's now formally launched and out there in the wild.
