Ngaio Marsh Award - Alix Bosco to "come out"
Awards organiser Craig Sisterson advises that it has now been confirmed that all four finalists - Paul Cleave, Neil Cross, Paddy Richardson and Alix Bosco - will appear at the "Setting the Stage for Murder" event on 21 August, where the winner will be announced. US authors John Hart (Steel Dagger and double Edgar Award winner) and Tess Gerritsen (20 million books sold worldwide) will also be appearing at the event.
Yes, this means that the elusive Miss/Mrs/Ms/Mr Bosco will be revealing their true identity in the lead-up to the event, and our event will be their first-ever public event in their crime writing persona - another coup for the Ngaios, which seem to keep taking good steps forward.
