About The Event
Sisters in Crime NSW are proud to be partnering with Better Read than Dead bookstore to present Lucy Campbell and Rae Cairns in conversation with a guest moderator on their recent releases. Both books centre on the secrets being held within the towns and how they affect the lives in such a substantial way.
Join us on Saturday, 19 August at 10:00 am as we sit down with two brilliant female crime writers and crack their secrets.
Lucy Campbell has worked as a writer and sub-editor across both print and digital platforms in magazines, newspapers, and non-fiction books. Lowbridge is her first novel. She lives in Canberra with her husband, three children and an assortment of animals.
Rae Cairns writes crime with heart: thrillers featuring everyday people facing extraordinary circumstances. Her debut novel The Good Mother was shortlisted for Best Debut Crime Fiction in the 2021 Ned Kelly Awards and longlisted for the 2021 Sisters in Crime Davitt Awards. It draws on her background as a youth worker in Northern Ireland during the final years of 'The Troubles'.
Dying to Know, Rae’s second novel, is a standalone Sydney based thriller and centres around a woman’s determination to uncover what happened to her missing sister.
Rae has also co-managed a crisis refuge for street children, worked as Program Director for the Sydney Olympic Youth Camp and holds a degree in Performing Arts.
