Bestseller Joanne Ellis warms dark Australian winter nights
Night Publishing's Australian authors are acquiring an international readership for their books which range from romance and crime to how to survive public service.

Joanne Ellis' new book which again is classified as romance / crime - with the emphasis on romance - is 'Twisted Fire' about the relationship between a moody, touchy fireman and the girl he keeps rescuing from burning buildings.
For those who like Joanne Ellis-style romance with extra spice, fellow Australian Violet Jones has just released 'American Girl' in which a woman bored with her marriage travels to America where she meets her femme fatale and is anything but bored.
Another Australian novelist writing about America is David Kupisiewicz whose 'Becoming Johnny Nova' recalls his adolescence in California as an extravaganza of birds, booze, bongs and bikes – living the Californian dream which wasn't all dreamy.
Australian Carolyn Allen was brought up in England as the daughter of a semi-famous father, pioneering plastic surgeon John Watson, who honed his skills transforming the 'Guinea Pigs' – airmen shot down in flames during the Second World War and suffering from appalling burns – and who may have been one of the last people to see Lord Lucan before he disappeared and the only one to know what he looked like after undergoing plastic surgery. Carolyn Allen's 'Knifing the Famous!' recalls the great man and her somewhat troubled relationship with him.
George Fripley's 'You Can't Polish A Turd' is a half-hilarious half-sobering take on how to survive and thrive in public service, delivering advice many would wish they had come across years ago, whether they work for a government department or for a large corporation. George's new book, 'The Dregs of History' summons up a gallery of rogues who are an object lesson in how not to behave in life or on the way to the scaffold.
Stacey Danson's 'Empty Chairs' is a real-life cautionary tale in how one should choose one's mother very carefully. Prostituted from the age of three and living wild on the streets by eleven, Stacey Danson recounts her childhood without blinking but also without self-pity. This stunning book has found a richly deserved and enthusiastic international readership over the last few months.
Night Publishing is very proud of its Australian writers and looks forward to publishing the works of other new Australian authors in the future.
