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.
Honey Brown is the author of the critically acclaimed novels Red Queen and The Good Daughter. Her third novel, The Gallery, is due to be released in 2012.
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.
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.
Angela Savage is the author of the Jayne Keeney series of crime novels.
