I’m a writer based in Melbourne, Australia, with a fascination for crime fiction and film, obscure pulp novels and all things Asian. I lived in Southeast Asia for six years in the nineties, based in Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand, as well as traveling around the wider region. During that time, I worked as a journalist, and as a communications consultant for the United Nations and a number of non-government organisations. I have since travelled frequently in Asia and lived in Phnom Penh with my family for a year in 2008, where I wrote for the international news wire, Inter Press Service, and worked on a European television documentary on the international tribunal into the crimes committed by the Khmer Rouge. My first book, Ghost Money, set in Cambodia in the mid-nineties, will be published in the second half of 2012 by Snubnose Press. I’m one of the founders of Crime Factory Publications, a Melbourne-based small press specialising in crime fiction, and help edit Crime Factory, its on-line magazine, which appears four times a year. I am also one of the editors of Crime Factory Publication’s second book, Crime Factory: Hard Labour, an anthology of short Australian crime fiction, due for release in August 2012. My film and book reviews have appeared in numerous other print and digital publications and forums. I’m the Australian contributor for the popular UK site, Crime Fiction Lover. for more: http://www.pulpcurry.com/about-pulp-curry/
Due out in September, but there's only so much alluring sitting around a book like this can do before a reader just has to sit down and read the thing.
From the Blurb:
A heist thriller set in Queensland, Melbourne and Thailand. Think Richard Stark's Parker, Garry Disher's Wyatt, and Wallace Stroby's Crissa Stone. Add a touch of Surfers Paradise sleaze and a very dangerous stopover in Asia.
