About Ber Carroll:

Ber Carroll was born in Blarney, Co. Cork and is one of six children.Β Ber moved to Sydney in 1995 with her boyfriend, Rob, who is nowΒ her husband of twenty years. She spent her early career workingΒ in finance but resigned when she realised that she couldn’t holdΒ down a demanding job, be mum to two young children and writeΒ books to contractual deadlines. Ber’s kids are young adults now andΒ their escapades provide great writing material. There is also PJ, theΒ family dog, who thinks Ber’s world revolves around him.

Despite all the distractions, Ber is the author of twelve novels. HerΒ last five novels have been written under B.M. Carroll to reflect thatΒ her writing has become darker and more twisted (which is also a reflection of her state of mind!). You Had It Coming was shortlistedΒ for the 2022 Ned Kelly Award for Best Crime Fiction and the 2022Β Davitt Award for Best Adult Novel.

About Petronella McGovern:
Petronella is fascinated by people - what makes us tick, how we view the world, and the lies we tell others and ourselves. She's interested in the complexities of relationships and the dynamics in families.Β 

She is a member of theΒ Australian Society of Authors, theΒ Australian Crime Writers AssociationΒ andΒ Sisters in Crime Australia. She has a Masters of Arts in Creative Writing from theΒ University of Technology, SydneyΒ and works as a creative writing tutor for theΒ Australian Writers Centre.

Petronella grew up in a large family on a farm in the Central West region of New South Wales - building tree houses, chasing cows and avoiding snakes. Bitten by the travel bug, she backpacked in Africa, Europe, America and Russia. After working in Canberra for a number of years, Petronella now lives in Sydney with her family.

See you there!
