    Dinuka McKenzie is a crime writer who debuted on the Australian literary scene with an almighty bang. Wining the Banjo Prize in 2020, Dinuka secured her spot in literary history and scored a book deal with publishing giant, HarperCollins Australia.

    Talking Aussie Books with Loraine Peck

    Talking Aussie Books with Loraine Peck

    When an author tells you she was married to a career criminal and that this inspired her debut novel, it cannot fail to pique your interest.

    Listening to Loraine Peck talk about her inspiration for her novel, "The Second Son" (Text Publishing) at a writers festival late last year, I knew I had to speak with her on the podcast to learn more.

    What followed was a fascinating chat about her life and how she came to write this gripping novel. A novel that has been described as "the modern Godfather".

    I had a blast chatting to Loraine about this fascinating and compelling book earlier this year.

    Talking Aussie Books with Jill Staunton

    Talking Aussie Books with Jill Staunton

    Jill Staunton is a North Queensland-based author of two novels, "Reiver's Moon" and "All That He Is". Both published by Boolarong Press.

    "All That He Is" was released late last year and boy oh boy, what a terrific read!

    This novel grabbed me from its opening pages and didn't let go until the very end.

    It had everything you want in a book: a cast of wonderfully depicted, strong and relatable characters, a rich plot, an incredible setting and vivid sense of place; mystery, suspense and a heart-wrenching love story to boot. It's a book that offers an enthralling glimpse into life in the outback, the impact of loss and trauma on our war veterans and hidden threats to our natural environment.

    I was absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to chat with Jill about "All That He Is" recently for the podcast.

    Talking Aussie Books with Ali Lowe

    Ali Lowe is a Sydney-based author who works as a journalist. I had the great pleasure of meeting Ali at a book launch back in December 2020 and was delighted to learn of her then upcoming debut novel.

    The book is now out in the world. Called "The Trivia Night" (published by Hodder & Stoughton) it's a page-turning, rip snorting read that will shock, delight and have you turning pages til the wee hours!

    A novel about 4 couples, one reckless night and the aftermath that threatens to rip their seemingly perfect lives apart.

    I had the best fun chatting with Ali recently about her book.

    Talking Aussie Books with Lizzie Pook

    Talking Aussie Books with Lizzie Pook

    'Moonlight and the Pearler's Daughter' (Penguin) is a brilliant debut novel from Lizzie Pook, an award-winning travel writer and journalist.

    Spending time in north-western Australia researching the south-sea pearling industry was Lizzie's inspiration for this novel - which not only explores the origin of this treacherous industry, but deals with themes of family, loss, redemption and the lengths a woman will go to to save someone she loves.

    A truly beautiful novel that explores the history of a remarkable part of this vast country of ours.

    I had the pleasure of chatting with Lizzie on the podcast recently.
