Chess, crime writing and all the right moves - Suzanne Frankham

Suzanne Frankham is a New Zealand born, Australian-based crime writer who published her first crime novel in 2021 called Shadow over Edmund Street, a police procedural and thriller set in Auckland featuring a detective called Alex Cameron.


Suzanne’s path to crime fiction began with short stories that have won Sisters in Crime Australia’s Scarlet Stiletto Awards and a S.D. Harvey Short Crime Story Award.


She’s also got degrees in zoology and computing and teaches chess, which we talk about a bit in the interview.
