News from 2017

Well, not much happening for me in the book world at the moment! It’s been a long time since my last post, but here’s what I’m up to at the moment:

  1. I’m currently in the last year of my PhD in creative writing. I’m loving it!  I’m writing a new crime novel that’s a big departure from my Sophie books. As part of the PhD I’m also writing an exegesis (the research component). My exegesis looks at the concept of ‘literary crime fiction’.  Does it exist? If so, what does it look like? Obviously there’s a lot more to that one :)
  2. I’m still teaching at Writers Victoria. I run at least one course a year with them, and for the past two years I’ve run their Digital Novel Intensive.
  3. I’m pretty busy with freelance work, too!
  4. And my lovely two children.

So that’s my 2017 in a nutshell. One of these days I’ll have a new book coming out…one of these days!
