Seven of our authors have been listed in the Adult Crime Fiction category including Jane Harper for Force of Nature, Sarah Schmidt’s See What I Have Done, Pip Smith’s Half Wild and Anna George’s The Lone Child. The Way Back by Kylie Ladd has also been nominated, as well as Rachel Leary’s Bridget Crack and Sara Foster’s The Hidden Hours

Carol Baxter’s The Fabulous Flying Mrs Miller, Sarah Krasnostein’s The Trauma Cleaner and Baby Lost by Hannah Robert have all been nominated in the Non-Fiction Crime category. And, in the Young Adult category, Fleur FerrisWreck has been featured.
