Born in Italy, growing up in country Victoria, and with three brothers in the police force – seems Mark Brandi was destined to write crime.

But it was a life-challenging accident that was the catalyst for him to take the risky leap from a job to a writing career. His debut crime novel, Wimmera, is about a “small town” (Stawell) with a “big secret”.

He talks with Stephanie Corsetti about his influences, from country pubs to Nick Cave’s music, about real-life justice and fictional crime, and about how he found his own writing voice in Wimmera.
