Undercover mystery writer wins award

Award-winning playwright Greg McGee, aka mystery writer Alix Bosco, has been awarded the Katherine Mansfield Menton Fellowship for 2013.

The literary award provides $75,000 and a six-month residency to work at Katherine Mansfield's old home, Villa Isola Bella, in Menton, on southern France's border with Italy.

Some time ago, I had the fun of outing McGee as Bosco. This was after his female mystery writer alter ego had won the Ngaio Marsh mystery award.  As was remarked at the time, it was odd to see it won by a ghost.

Then he fronted up with the truth.  You can see my interview with him here.  Can we look forward to a mystery set in Menton?
