Randell Cottage Writers Trust joins High Spot Literary in congratulating our 2019 Resident Paddy Richardson, our 2019 CNZ RCWT Writing Fellow. Four of her thrillers are to be published in Australia.

From High Spot Literary on Facebook:

We are absolutely delighted to announce that Paddy Richardson has just signed with Australian publisher, Brio Books who will be publishing four of her most popular thrillers – HUNTING BLIND, A YEAR TO LEARN A WOMAN, TRACES OF RED and RED HANDS.
Head of Fiction at Brio, David Henley, immediately recognised Paddy’s strength as a thriller writer.
“We are so pleased to be Paddy’s new home with her set of four dark and emotionally vexing #NZnoir titles. Paddy is an outstanding author who effortlessly creates foreboding and tension with every sentence, and we hope we can help her gain the recognition she deserves.”
Brio Books is an independent publisher built on quality, partnership and innovation with a great history of supporting Australian and New Zealand authors. They recently joined the Booktopia Group.
High Spot Literary agent, Vicki Marsdon, who has worked with Paddy for a number of years, is thrilled to see her books back in print.
“Paddy is one of New Zealand’s best crime and thriller writers with a genuine pedigree as an author of dark and twisty stories. She is world class and I am excited at the prospect of Brio – through their innovative publishing and marketing – introducing her to many more readers.”
Paddy agrees. “I am excited about the opportunity to work with David Henley and the team at Brio books/ Booktopia and very much looking forward to sharing my books with new readers.”
Congratulations Paddy!
