Garry Disher Profile

Lucinda Schmidt profiles Garry Disher in "The Sydney Morning Herald" (and also in "The Age").

In 2008, Garry Disher will celebrate 20 years as a full-time author but he still describes his career as a work in progress.

"You become a writer and that can take years," says the quietly spoken Disher, 57, who is one of Australia's top crime writers. "I still feel I'm undertaking an apprenticeship in some ways. I'm a bit restless, always wanting to improve."

Winning the 2007 Ned Kelly award for best crime novel (for Chain of Evidence) was a big confidence booster for Disher and he is now working on a follow-up tentatively titled Blood Moon.

I'm not sure if this is the Wyatt novel due to be published by Text later this year or a new Challis/Destry book.
