Tough crime, psychological thrillers, true crime, devious procedurals, detective series. Whatever your favourite kind of crime, you can be sure there's always a new kid on the block, ready to dazzle with a book that shifts the boundaries. How is the genre changing and what do crime writers think is the next big thing? Andrew Nette spends an hour with the experts to find out what's making waves in crime writing.


Fleur Ferris spent the first seventeen years of her life growing up on a farm in Patchewollock, northwest Victoria. She then moved twenty times in twenty years. During this time, Fleur sometimes saw the darker side to life while working for a number of years as a police officer and a paramedic. She now lives a more settled lifestyle in Moama, southern New South Wales, with her husband and three children.

Fleur’s first novel, Risk, won the Australian Family Therapists’ Award for Children’s Literature, the Sisters in Crime Davitt Awards for Best Young Adult Novel and Best Debut Book 2016, as well as a YABBA in 2017. She has also written BlackWreck and Found for young adults. Nullaboo Hullabaloo is Fleur’s first novel for young readers.
