Journalist, crime writer (The Agatha Christie Book Club, Ghostwriter Mystery series), political ranter, feminist, news junkie and mum.
Ever since she first read Alfred Hitchcock and The Three Investigators’ Mystery of the Whispering Mummy (Collins; 1973), Christina Larmer has been hooked on words and writing. Born and bred in tropical Papua New Guinea, she began her career as a journalist on Australia’s leading women’s lifestyle magazine, Cleo, then moved into editing teen, entertainment and women’s titles, before moving to the United States to run publishing bureaus in New York and Los Angeles. Now settled in Byron Bay in Northern NSW, Australia, Larmer works partly as a freelance journalist (health, home and parenting) and partly as a crime writer. Larmer has self-published seven crime fiction novels, including the best-selling Agatha Christie Book Club and the popular Ghostwriter Mystery Series, and has amassed ebook sales in excess of 25,000 copies. When she’s not penning articles for national magazines or plotting her next murder, she can be found helping her husband in his music studio, cheering her sons on in soccer, or wrangling wayward snakes on their hinterland property.
