A Catherine Kint Mystery, set in Ocean Grove

Bodysurfing, the third Victoria-based Catherine Kint mystery by Hugh McGinlay, is now out with Clan Destine Press.

Author Hugh McGinlay is a writer and musician. These poor life decisions mean he has also worked as bus driver, kitchenhand, singing teacher and seller of dental consumables.
