Posted @withrepost • Such a great night, thank you ! @bbound If you are looking for Katherine Kovacic and R.W.R. McDonald they may have gone robber baroning (??) after stealing our hearts and minds last night… 🤠🐎📚#dallas We had such a great night talking about “Painting in the Shadows” and “The Nancy’s” – about creating unforgettable characters, the importance of fur characters (you must check out the Facebook site of Katherine’s fur character, Irish wolfhound Hogarth), subverting the genre, Nancy Drew, art…. and so much more. 🖼🐈🐕🧐 Beware readers! These are dangerously good. 📚 Thanks to everyone who came out on such a deep Winter’s evening and to these terrific authors for turning it into such a warm and cosy event. @katherine.kovacic @rwrmcdonald @echo_publishing @allenandunwin #authorevent #crimefiction #thenancys #paintingintheshadows #art #books #amreading #yeahnoir #queerfiction
Another night of great crime writing conversation at Brunswick Bound Upstairs in August.
We love it when good friends (with dastardly imaginations) get together to talk books, and this promises to be a criminally entertaining evening.
Katherine Kovacic is a former veterinarian turned art historian who works with a wide variety of museums, galleries and historic houses. She lives in Melbourne with a Borzoi and a Scottish Deerhound. The Portrait of Molly Dean was her debut novel and the first Alex Clayton art mystery.
Rob McDonald is a Kiwi living in Melbourne with his two daughters and an extended family of two baby mommas, an estranged cat, Flower, and Stevie Nicks the chicken. Rob attended Faber Academy’s Writing a Novel Stage 1 and Stage 2 and an excerpt of The Nancys was published in the Faber Writing Academy ‘Writing a Novel’ Anthology, Allen & Unwin (2016). Rob realised while studying journalism that writing fiction, rather than reporting facts, was his true bent. The Nancys was Highly Commended for an Unpublished Manuscript in the 2017 Victorian Premier’s Literary Awards.
