Craig Sisterson is a lapsed lawyer who grew up among Middle Earth scenery in New Zealand, solving mysteries alongside the Hardy Boys, Hercule Poirot, and Agaton Sax. He now lives in London and writes for magazines and newspapers in several countries, intercut with being an event chair, festival founder, and book awards judge.

In recent years he’s interviewed hundreds of crime writers and talked about the genre on national radio, top podcasts, and onstage at festivals on three continents. He’s been a judge of the McIlvanney Prize and Ned Kelly Awards, and is founder of the Ngaio Marsh Awards and co-founder of Rotorua Noir.

“We can all dance when we find music that we love.”
Giles Andreae

Paul Cleave
“Most killers have pretty average lifestyles. Steady jobs too. Sometimes they're even living the family life-white picket fence and a four-door sedan. That's what makes them so scary. They act human and they slot into society and since a young age they've known how to hide the crazy; they put it up on a shelf and only bring it out on special occasions.”
Paul Cleave, The Killing Hour

Dr. Seuss
“You know you're in love when you can't fall asleep because reality is finally better than your dreams.”
Dr. Seuss

“It's now very common to hear people say, 'I'm rather offended by that.' As if that gives them certain rights. It's actually nothing more... than a whine. 'I find that offensive.' It has no meaning; it has no purpose; it has no reason to be respected as a phrase. 'I am offended by that.' Well, so fucking what."

[I saw hate in a graveyard -- Stephen Fry, The Guardian, 5 June 2005]”
Stephen Fry

“Do not spoil what you have by desiring what you have not.”
Ann Brashares, Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood
