Thu 20 Feb at The Literature Centre FREE

Presented in association with The Literature Centre

In the lead up to our Literature & Ideas Weekend we’re bringing a series of thought-provoking, captivating and thoroughly entertaining discussions to Fremantle.

Alan Carter’s award-winning crime novels featuring the disgraced cop and ex poster boy for the WA Police Force, Cato Kwang, are set disturbingly close to home in Fremantle, Port Coogee and Perth.  Spend an intriguing hour with Alan as he maps out his writing journey, his Cato Kwong novels and his latest release, Marlborough Man, set in New Zealand’s South Island.

Born in Sunderland in the UK, Alan Carter immigrated to Australia in 1991 and now lives just south of Hobart. He sometimes works as a television documentary director and in his spare time plunges into the icy Tasmanian waters for fun. He is the author of four Cato Kwong novels – Prime CutGetting Warmer, Bad Seed and Heaven Sent and the Nick Chester novel, Marlborough Man, set in New Zealand. Doom Creek (out in 2020) is the second in the Nick Chester series.
