One of the great pleasures of doing publicity for All These Perfect Strangers is getting to meet people who love books as much as I do. At the Sydney Writers Festival I got to chat with Candice Fox and Graham Potts about 'Rising Tension', in Canberra it was talking with Emily McGuire about the portrayal of women in crime fiction, in Geelong it was catching up with the lovely Ann Turner to discuss our complimentary takes on crime and university life and in Melbourne it was all about being a debut author with Sisters in Crime's Janice Simpson. It was so much fun meeting up with old friends, new friends and lots of enthusiastic readers. My favourite part of any talk always are the audience's questions - you never know what you are going to be asked and it never ceases to be a surprise and delight. So if you are in the audience at a Writer's Festival or an event, be brave and grab that microphone!
