Ahead of She Kilda 2011, the Australian Women Crime Writers’ Convention, the Wheeler Centre welcomes some of Australia’s leading crime writers. They discuss why there’s such an appetite for women’s crime writing. Honey Brown, Lindy Cameron, Kerry Greenwood and Angela Savage - four writers at different stages of their careers - discuss all things criminally unladylike.
Kerry Greenwood is the author of the Phryne Fisher and Corinna Chapman series of crime novels, as well as a large number of plays and books in a variety of genres and categories.
Honey Brown lives in country Victoria, Australia, with her husband and two children. She began writing in 2000 and is the author of six critically acclaimed novels. Her first novel Red Queen was published to critical acclaim in 2009 and won an Aurealis Award, and The Good Daughter was longlisted for the Miles Franklin Literary Award and shortlisted for the Barbara Jefferis Award in 2011.
Lindy Cameron is the author of the Bryn Gideon and Kit O'Malley series as well as true crime. Before plunging into the world of make-believe, Lindy worked as a journalist and a book editor. She also wrote some primary school history texts and a card game book for kids.
Angela Savage is an award-winning Melbourne author.
