Lawless, TW

I was born and raised in outback Australia but currently live in Melbourne. I was a health professional for many years but I always wanted to write books. During my time in the health field I studied creative writing, screenwriting and film- making. My first book was Homecountry which was published in early 2013. I believe that you should never give up on your dreams.

Currently Reading - A Morbid Habit, Annie Hauxwell

Book Title: 
Author Name: 

Apparently I have poor impulse control. And this is supposed to be news. But really, the latest Catherine Berlin was always going to be very hard to resist.  Apologies to other authors waiting for reviews - I've been bad as A MORBID HABIT isn't actually due out until July but I simply could not help myself.

Currently Reading - How I Became the Mr Big of People Smuggling, Martin Chambers

Author Name: 

This book managed quite successfully to hold my attention for a one sitting read, despite the ebb and flow of visitors in and out of the place for the last couple of weeks.

From the Blurb:

Nick Smart is fresh out of school, a wet-behind-the-ears jackaroo on a gap year. But at Palmenter Station, nothing is what it seems. Nick is about to discover there’s a lot of grey between black and white, between legal and illegal and between right and wrong.

From the WOW pile of Australian Crime Fiction.

From the Blurb:

Hades Archer, the man they call the Lord of the Underworld, surrounds himself with the things others leave behind. Their trash becomes the twisted sculptures that line his junkyard. The bodies they want disposed of become his problem for a fee. Then one night a man arrives on his doorstep, clutching a small bundle that he wants 'lost'. And Hades makes a decision that will change everything...

Currently Reading - Dixon Grace: 1.9.7 Hamburg, Alexa Camouro

Author Name: 

Easter / Anzac Day break meant not as much reading as I would have liked. But we had lots of visitors (fun) and lots of eating (more fun) and a bit too much red wine (fun at the time). Still firing up the Rolling Stones helped with a bit of speed reading.
