2017 Ngaio Marsh Awards entrants Cat Connor, TA MacLagan, and LJ Ritchie will discuss how they create memorable characters, craft page-turning plotlines, and infuse their exciting storytelling with real-life issues. Steph Soper of the New Zealand Book Council will umpire.
This is a free event.
Cat Connor’s ‘byte’ books starring FBI Special Agent Ellie Conway have been described as “fast-paced techno-thrillers with black humour, likable protagonists, full of twists and turns”.
TA MacLagan is a Kansas native who immigrated to the bush-clad hills of Wellington. Her series starring a reluctant teenage spy has been called "page-turning, slickly written, and full of intrigue".
LJ Ritchie's Like Nobody's Watching centres on a group of teens who use computer skills to combat bullies, only to be seduced by their new-found power. "An engaging story about the line between heroes and villains, and the abuse of social media".
