Alan Carter, who also lives in South Freo, was the recent winner of the Ned Kelly Award for Best First Fiction. I was over for the awards ceremony, and it Alan gave a very charming speech. It was great to catch up with Angela Savage (I’ve reviewed The Half-Child earlier) and her partner, Andrew Nette, and his co-editors at Crime Factory, Cameron Ashley and Liam Jose. My review of Alan’s book can be found online in the most recent edition of Crime Factory, #7
