The Ngaio Marsh Awards, in association with the Waipa District Council, invites booklovers to an event featuring four talented storytellers from the upper North Island.
As crime writing has evolved from puzzle-like mysteries to novels delving deeply into people and places, it has continued to be the world’s most popular form of storytelling. But what makes the genre so fascinating?
Waikato-based missing persons expert and true crime author Scott Bainbridge is joined by Cambridge crime writer Nikki Crutchley, Rotorua crime writer Zoe Beesley, and former cop turned crime writer Ian Austin to discuss what draws them to these kinds of tale, how they craft memorable characters, and the impact of our local settings and universal themes on their books.
