I am absolutely thrilled to announce that The Second Son has been shortlisted for a Ned Kelly Award in the category of Best Debut Crime Fiction! Organised by the Australian Crime Writers Association, The Ned Kelly Awards are Australia’s oldest and most prestigious recognition of crime fiction and true crime writing, so to be shortlisted is such a huge honour. 

I’m also in such incredible company, the other books shortlisted for Best Debut are The Good Mother by Rae Cairns, The Bluffs by Kyle Perry and The Night Whistler by Greg Woodland.
