Kimberley Starr is the winner of the 2015 Text Prize for Young Adult and Chilren’s Writing. Her mediaeval fantasy novel, The Book of Whispers, is a thrilling quest with a kick-ass female and male protagonist—and set in the eleventh century during the Crusades. It’s energetic, lots of fun and a thoroughly satisfying read suitable for ages fourteen and up.
Elizabeth Haynes, author of the creepiest stalker novel ever, Into the Darkest Corner, terrifies us all over again with her new psychological thriller Never Alone. It’s a brilliantly suspenseful and shockingly relatable story set in a remote Yorkshire village, in which Sarah Carpenter trustingly invites an old acquantaince, Aiden Beck, into her home and life.
The Scholl Case is the gripping true story of a man convicted of the brutal murder of his wife. They were considered the perfect couple, married for almost fifty years.
We spoke to award-winning journalist Anja Reich-Osang about her experience writing this incredible story.
Congratulations to Helen Garner on winning both the non-fiction and overall premier’s prizes at the 2016 Western Australian Premier’s Book Awards for This House of Grief.
This House of Grief is the heartbreaking and compelling story of Robert Farquharson, who was convicted of the murder of his three young sons after plunging their car into a dam. Helen Garner tells the story of a man and his broken life; she presents the theatre of the courtroom in the extraordinary quest for justice. Author Kate Atkinson describes Helen Garner as ‘an invaluable guide into harrowing territory and offers powerful and unforgettable insights. This House of Grief, in its restraint and control, bears comparison with In Cold Blood.’
