Two crime fiction greats discuss their latest books & how to write crime – with a difference. 

Both Sulari Gentill and Emma Viskic have authored crime series that stray from the beaten path… with Gentill’s wildly popular, charming and historical Rowland Sinclair Mysteries, and Viskic’s award-winning, heart-pounding Caleb Zelic series featuring a profoundly deaf protagonist. Pour yourself a stiff drink and hear them chinwag about their latest releases, the art of crime writing sans cliche, and much more.


Sulari Gentill is the author of the award-winning and best-selling Rowland Sinclair Mysteries, the Greek mythology adventure series The Hero Trilogy, and winner of the Best Crime award at the 2018 Ned Kelly Awards, Crossing the Lines.

Award-winning author Sulari Gentill set out to study astrophysics, graduated in law, and then abandoned her legal career to write books instead of contracts.

Born in Sri Lanka, Sulari learned to speak English in Zambia, grew up in Brisbane and now lives in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains of NSW where, with her historian husband, she grows French black truffles, cares for a variety of animals and raises two wild colonial boys. Sulari also paints, but only well enough to know she should write, preferably in her pyjamas.

Emma Viskic is author of the critically acclaimed Caleb Zelic series. Resurrection Bay won the 2016 Ned Kelly Award for Best First Fiction, as well as an unprecedented three Davitt Awards: Best Adult Novel, Best Debut, and Readers’ Choice. It was iBooks Australia’s Crime Novel of the Year and was shortlisted for the UK Crime Writers’ Association Gold Dagger and New Blood awards. Its sequel, And Fire Came Down, won the 2018 Davitt Award for Best Novel. Also, a classically trained clarinettist, Emma studied at the Victorian College of the Arts and the Rotterdam Conservatorium. Her musical career ranged from performing with José Carreras and Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, to playing at an engagement party that ended in a brawl.
