Alibi Press: Terry Carson

Welcome to Alibi Press the writing and publishing website of Terry Carson.


In 2003 I gave up my legal career to follow my passion for writing and publishing.


After writing several books and contributing articles to many magazines and newspapers it became time to establish Alibi Press to publish and promote non-fiction writing, both my own and that of others.


Alibi Press publishes a number of non-fiction books. Our small but ever growing catalogue is listed below.


I also contribute regular articles to New Zealand's online lifestyle magazine for the over 50s: GrownUps.

New Book - now on sale!

Alibi Press announces the publication of The Axeman's Accomplice - The true story of Margaret Reardon and the Snow family murders.


This 107pp paperback re-examines the sensational 1847 murders of naval Lieutenant Robert Snow, his wife and daughter at Devonport on Auckland's North Shore. This book, which takes the reader back to the earliest days of the establishment of Auckland, separates fact from fiction and tries to answer the many still outstanding questions, in particular the role of the murderer's mistress, Margaret Reardon, the only woman ever sentenced to a term of transportation by a New Zealand court. This is a fascinating true crime read.
