Authors Sulari Gentill, Sarah Schmidt and Megan Goldin debate unreliable narrators, the blurring of truth and fiction, and much much more with Robyn Walton.
Crossing the Lines (Pantera Press), Sulari Gentill’s new stand-alone murder mystery, explores what happens when the imagined becomes better than reality. Madeleine d’Leon is fixated on the story of Edward ‘Ned’ McGinnity, the hero in this crime novel. But Ned, too, is a writer and the character he can’t get out of his head is none other than Madeleine herself. Read Robyn’s Walton’s review, which first appeared in The Weekend Australian Review.
Sulari, a lawyer turned truffle grower, has written the award-winning and best-selling Rowland Sinclair Mysteries – no. 8, A Dangerous Language (Pantera Press) is due out in, October – as well as the Greek mythology adventure series, The Hero Trilogy.
Sarah Schmidt’s debut novel, See What I Have Done (Hachette), offers a unique look inside the mind of America’s Lizzie Borden, famously accused of murdering her father and stepmother in 1892. According to the rhyme, Lizzie Borden took an axe … but did she?
Sarah works as a Reading and Literacy Co-ordinator at a regional public library and has a Master of Arts (Creative Writing).
Megan Goldin’s debut novel, The Girl in Kellers Way (Penguin Random House), revolves around the murder of an unknown woman near the desolate forest road of Kellers Way in small-town America. This is a novel bursting with misdirections, twists and uncertainties and a narrator who vacillates between a fugue state and jealous mania.
Megan worked as a producer and foreign correspondent for the ABC and Reuters in Asia and the Middle East. Now back in her hometown of Melbourne, she has turned her hand to fiction.
Robyn Walton, a Sisters in Crime convenor, has a PhD in English Literature and has taught English and Cultural History at universities in Sydney and Melbourne. She reviews books for several publications and interviews authors for the Sisters in Crime website.
