Tom Keneally Centre Readings

Meet Tara Moss, bestselling author of nine novels including the recently released crime thriller, Assassin in the cosy Tom Keneally Centre.


About ‘Assassin’

Assassin, is the last and latest in Tara’s Mak series- a series that has sold over half a million copies in Australia alone.  The series is available in 17 countries and 11 languages, including Italy, Spain, Portugal, Germany, UK, France, Russia, Romania, Hungary, Croatia, Czech Republic, Japan, Brazil, Australia and NZ. These dark and glamorous crime thrillers featuring protagonist Makedde Vaderwall are a favourite with readers, and Tara became the top-selling crime writer in Australia. Now, after a few years’ break, Mak is back. And this time she’s ready to make her own justice.

Guest Speaker

Crime writer, TV presenter, model, social media whizz, wife, mum, goodwill ambassador for UNICEF and now UNICEF Patron for Breastfeeding for the Baby Friendly Health Initiative in Australia — Tara Moss is a modern-day superwoman, and her books are super-sellers. Tara famously takes her research for her books to extreme levels, qualifying as a private investigator as well as being both choked to unconsciousness and set on fire in a quest for authenticity. She is also involved with a number of charities and is a supporter of the Stella Prize, a new literary award for women writers in Australia.
