Event description

Description

Subiaco Library is pleased to present an evening with debut Perth author, Dervla McTiernan.

Come spend an evening with Dervla as she discusses her debut crime novel, The Rúin. The subject of a hotly contested global bidding war in 2016, The Rúin, set the publishing world ablaze. Dervla has breathed new life in to the crime genre with a new breed of detective and a new favourite in her protagonist DS Cormac Reilly.

Spend an evening listening to Dervla as she delves into her creative process and the crime genre she has successfully entered.

About Dervla

Dervla McTiernan was born in County Cork, Ireland to a family of seven. She studied corporate law at the National University of Ireland, Galway and practised as a lawyer for twelve years. Following the global financial crisis she moved with her family to Western Australia, where she now works for the Mental Health Commission. In 2015 submitted a story for the Sisters in Crime Scarlet Stiletto competition and was shortlisted. This inspired her to complete the novel that would become The Rúin. She lives in Perth with her husband and two children.

Dymocks Subiaco will be selling copies of The Rúin at the event.
