I’m really excited about visiting Taiwan, and especially looking forward to saying hi to those who have enjoyed the books. One thing that I must do when I’m there is to throw my Frisbee, to add it to the list of countries I’ve thrown it. So, for me, what I’m really hoping is to find somebody who is local who’s willing to go to a park or somewhere really iconic to play Frisbee with. 



Paul Cleave is an internationally bestselling author who is currently dividing his time between his home city of Christchurch, New Zealand, where all of his novels are set, and Europe, where none of his novels are set.

His work has been translated into fifteen languages. He has won the Ngaio Marsh award for best New Zealand crime novel, he won the Saint-Maur book festival’s crime novel of the year in France, has been shortlisted for the Edgar Award and the Barry Award in the US, has been shortlisted for the Ned Kelly award in Australia, and has hit the #1 spot on Amazon in three different countries.

When he’s not writing, he’s trying to add to his list of 26 countries where he’s thrown his Frisbee. Five Minutes Alone is his latest novel, and brings back Theodore Tate, the main character from Cemetery Lake, Collecting Cooper, and The Laugher House. Paul’s currently editing his ninth novel, due for release in 2015.
