Paramedics are incredible people and Australians are lucky to have such a reliable ambulance service in our states and territories. Brisbane paramedic Harry Colfer (a nom de plume) has published his debut novel Dead Regular, and is giving Carpe Librum readers the chance to win a signed copy. Dead Regular is a murder mystery set on the streets of Brisbane full of suspense and dark humour. Sound good?

Enter below and good luck!


Catching a serial killer won’t be easy when nobody suspects murder…

One thing is stopping Jono from loving his job as a paramedic. It’s not the blood and gore, nor the vomiting drunks, not even the seemingly endless rolling shifts. It’s the overbearing management. He’s a competent clinician who always does the best for his patients, but petty bureaucracy and red tape never fail to fire him up.

Despite this disaffection, Jono won’t ignore the fact that several ambulance ‘regulars’ have been turning up dead. Each death in itself seems innocent enough, but the sudden mounting body count raises his suspicions. Is it just a coincidence, or has someone decided to clean up the city? What’s more worrying is that Jono appears to be the only one who cares.

Author Bio

Harry Colfer is the pseudonym of an experienced paramedic who lives and works in Brisbane, Australia. Although his stories are totally fictional, his writing style is very realistic and he maintains a healthy level of paranoia with respect to his anonymity.

To date he has published twenty short stories in the Ambo Tales From The Frontline series and plans to write another twelve, one for each of the thirty-two AMPDS codes, the system used worldwide to categorise emergency calls. He has also written Beneath Contempt, the sequel to Dead Regular, which will be available in 2021.


This giveaway for a signed print copy of Dead Regular for AUS & NZ entrants valued at $16.99AUD, and a print copy for international entrants has now closed.
