News From Mel

Crime fiction is the biggest selling genre in Oz, says psychological thriller author, LA Larkin. Think biological warfare, espionage, cyber-stalking and hacking, and you start to understand how Larkin spends her days – researching it, not doing it, that is. Her latest novel, Devour, described as ‘ice-pick sharp, packed with intrigue, action and spine-chilling suspense’ is full of all of these and more. The Australian/British author is always learning and shares with us how to go about writing action adventure thrillers. In Larkin’s case, the environment plays a large part in her stories and to this end she’s spent time in Antarctica, researching the chilly stations of a scientific research station. During our chat I learn about white hat/black hat hackers and how the webcam on my computer may be watching me. I also learn about writing habits and routines, which I really need to do something about. You can find out more about Larkin and her novels here.
