Working with Words: Angela Savage

Angela Savage is a Melbourne-based crime writer, who has lived and travelled extensively in Asia. Her first novel, Behind the Night Bazaar, won the 2004 Victorian Premier’s Literary Award for an unpublished manuscript. She is a winner of the Scarlett Stiletto Award and has twice been shortlisted for Ned Kelly awards. Her latest crime novel set in Thailand, featuring ex-pat Australian private investigator Jayne Keeney, is The Dying Beach.

We spoke to Angela about getting away with murder as a ten-year-old birdwatcher, her writing advice from Christos Tsiolkas (‘Just get the story down’) and her fantasy of drinking in an all-night Bangkok bar with Philip Marlowe.
