About this event

This fabulous line up of historical fiction authors will discuss their works, their writing and more in a Q&A panel hosted by Jess Obersby.

Robert Gott is the author of 97 books, both fiction and non-fiction. He has written eight crime novels, set in Australia in the 1940s, two of which have been shortlisted for the Ned Kelly Award for Best Crime Fiction. He is also the creator of the long-running newspaper cartoon The Adventures of Naked Man. His latest novel is The Orchard Murders in August 2021.

Award winning Melbourne author, Alison Stuart writes historical romances and short stories set in England and Australia and across different periods of history. She also writes historical mysteries as A.M. Stuart (the Harriet Gordon mystery, series, set in Singapore in 1910). Her best selling ‘Maiden’s Creek’ series (The Postmistress and The Goldminer’s Sister) are both set in Gippsland and loosely based on the township of Walhalla.

Katherine Kovacic is a Melbourne-based writer, art historian and former veterinarian. Her debut novel, The Portrait of Molly Dean, was shortlisted for the 2019 Ned Kelly Award for Best First Fiction and is the first of three books in the Alex Clayton art mystery series. Katherine’s true crime book, The Schoolgirl Strangler, was published in 2021.

Bram Presser is a semi-reformed punk rocker, recovering academic, occasional criminal lawyer and two-time cartoon character. His debut novel, The Book of Dirt was published to wide acclaim and went on to win three prizes at the NSW Premier’s Literary Awards - Fiction, Best New Writer and People’s Choice Award - as well as the 2018 Voss Literary Prize. Most recently, it won the Goldberg Prize for Debut Fiction at the National Jewish Book Awards in America.

Jessica Obersby is a disabled, emerging writer who believes own voices stories have the power to change people’s lives. She works as an Online Learning Administrator for Writers Victoria. Jessica is a graduate of the RMIT Professional Writing and Editing program and in 2019 was awarded a Writers Victoria Writeability Fellowship. Her work in progress is YA speculative fiction that has a protagonist with mental illness.
