He won The Australian Vogel Literary Award in 2008 and the 2010 NSW Premier’s Literary Award for New Writing for his first novel, 'Document Z'.
Dr Croome’s presentation focused on his experiences of writing Document Z,which used archival sources and first-hand accounts as it retold the Petrov affair, a story of spies, espionage and betrayal that rocked Australia in the 1950’s.
