I just got an update on MWF guests posted on my blog by Rosemary Cameron from MWF outlining guests that we might be interested in.
Can you see the happy dancing that's going on in our house right this second! This is the update:
"Hello just wanted to give you an idea of some of the crime/thriller writers coming to The Age Melbourne Writers' Festival this year.
There are some biggies like Jeffery Deaver, Karin Slaughter, Gabrielle Lord, Shane Maloney, Quintin Jardine, Michael Robotham and David Hewson. And for those who like their crime gentle, Alexander McCall Smith. Some newcomers like Leah Giarratano, Andrew Hutchinson and Geoffrey Cousins. Dorothy Porter returns to crime in verse. James Phelan has another thriller, Patriot Act. Adrian Hyland takes his crime to the red centre and Liz Porter talks true crime.
Juli Zeh from Leipzig writes crime stories from that lawless land that opens up when countries disappear and new ones are formed - perfect for organised crime to move in, drug and people smuggling.
John Ajvide Lindqvist is a stand-out Swedish writer whose new novel fally somewhere between crime, horror and romance. A vampire love-story.
Don't forget the Ned Kelly Awards on Wednesday 29 August in the evening - free-of-charge to attend and always fantastic entertainment.
Keep an eye on our website - www.mwf.com.au"
John Ajvide Lindqvist, Adrian Hyland, Michael Robotham - everyone else on the list ....... SIIIGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
