Loraine Peck on crime, magic and vision boards

Katherine Talks to author Loraine Peck.

Loraine Peck started her career as a portrait painter and magician’s assistant in Sydney. After being sawn in half one too many times, she switched to dealing blackjack on the Gold Coast. Bartending and slinging lobsters in the US led to a sales job in the movie industry, before she was propelled into a career in marketing in Australia, the Middle East, Asia and the US. Consumed by a desire to write crime thrillers, she decided to stop everything and do a writing course—to learn how to write the kind of book she loves to read.

The Second Son is her first novel and she is at work on the sequel.

Loraine and her husband spend their time between Sydney and the Gold Coast.

Loraine’s favourite debut novel is The Safe Place by Anna Downes
