Hi Leigh. I just want to say i felt like i have lived parallel to Simone Kirsch. i feel like i have been and worked in all the places that she has, and haunted all the places she has haunted. i love your books, and i am constantly looking in borders to see when the next one is coming out. it has been a long time since i have found a book interesting, so thankyou for renewing my interest in reading. i have worked all up and down king street in Melbourne. Did you ever work at Diamonds which is now Spearmint Rhino?
Nice to hear from ya! Yes indeed, both A&U babies now.... been a long time coming but worth it. Are you going to Byron Bay? If so, I'll catch you there! If not, you're on for St Kilda... it rocks, even in winter!
Take care and catch you in June.
I thought I was the only one with a conveluted life. You are definately an intriging person. I can't wait to read some of your work. Since I am relativley new to writing, four years, and only short story publication, I don't quite feel like I fit in to the authors world, yet.
Check out my profile if you get a chance.
I was in Sydney in 2000 for the Olympics, in the land down under where (in an unsung verse by Men at Work) women glow and men chunder. It was magical. Bottle it and sell it and you'll never have to work another day in your life.
Hi Leigh, thanks for the invite to visit you here. I'm a Brisbanite (member of CrimeWriters Qld), and enjoyed your forum at the B.W.Festival last year (you were with Ian Callinan, another CWQ member). I believe you'll be at Melbourne soon. 've just left there and it b.cold. (Not a good climate for strippers!)
Well thank you everyone for being my friend and thanks Daniel for turning me into a computer geek. When it comes to technology things have to be explained to me veeeerrryyy slooooowly. Gosh, isn't the internet just a great way of procrastinating from writing?
Hi Leigh. Great to catch up with you on Wednesday. Do you give flamboyance lessons? Good luck in Broken Hill - maybe you could pick up a few tips from Emily Tempest. By the way, Leigh - have you got my email address?
D'oh! Just realised I'd have to revisit your site to get your reply to my message and it wouldn't just pop onto my page by magic. Can you possibly add anyone this dim - and a Pom to boot - to your list of friends?
Hi Leigh- the synopsis on your website calls to mind the style of Lauren Henderson (BLACK RUBBER DRESS). Ever heard of her? I toured Oz (Brisbane, Newcastle, Port Kembla, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth, to be precise) back in 1987 on a US Navy destroyer, and I never paid for a drink or met anyone who was anything other than nice to me. I've still very much got a soft spot for Aussies, and if our paths should ever cross in person, the first Victoria Bitter's on me (wish I could find that stuff here in the States!).
Hi Leigh ... I like the sound of Simone, the stripper-detective - reminiscent of Carl Hiaasen's brilliant 90s novel Striptease (pity the film was such crap). Anyway, I can't find your books anywhere on Amazon in the UK or US (they keep directing me to a sizzling romance called The Rancher and the Redhead .. !) ... Any tips on where I could find em online?
