Nicci French in conversation with Candice Fox

For Roaring Stories’ first author event of 2023 – in collaboration with BAD Sydney Crime Writers Festival – we are thrilled to present the London-based bestselling crime fiction duo behind the nom de plume Nicci French, in conversation with one of Australia’s crime writing superstars, Candice Fox!

Both journalists, husband and wife Sean French and Nicci Gerard have published several riveting books together, including House of Correction, The Unheard and The Lying Room. Now, they’ve put their combined genius together again to write The Favour – a gripping read that Lee Child has hailed as ‘fantastic… a breathless drumbeat of dread and suspense’ and Erin Kelly has described as ‘heart-thumping, head-scratching, nail-biting stuff.’

Join them at The Royal Oak Balmain on Wednesday 1 March, for what’s sure to be a fascinating and thrilling dive into crime fiction, collaborative authorship, and how to write a book that really turns the screw!

Signed copies of The Favour will be available for purchase at the venue through Roaring Stories, as well as in-store.

Attendees are asked to arrive at 6.30pm or earlier for a 7pm start. Seating is unallocated – a good reason to arrive early to secure an optimal spot. Why not make a full evening of it and come for dinner too? You can order a drink and a meal from The Royal Oak before or after the event.

If you miss out on a ticket, you can still watch the event as it is livestreamed from the Roaring Stories Facebook page (accessible on the Home page and from the Live tab). A recording will also be available to view later as an upload on the Roaring Stories YouTube channel.
