I’m a Sunshine Coast girl, that’s the Sunshine Coast, Queensland, Australia. It’s where I get my ideas and inspiration, and where Dusty gets her chance to prove herself as a PI.
It’s a family tourist destination, not the most likely environment for crime, but I like to imagine there’s more going on than you see on the surface.
It might look like the perfect place to pull up a deck chair and pull out my crime novel, soak up some sun, and feel the sand between your toes. But once you get into it, and see it from Dusty’s point of view, you might be cautious about going into the water.
That’s my job, to show you what I see, and to have some fun along the way.
To Chris McConville. An authority on crime novels, Chris encouraged me from the first draft of the first chapter and offered informed analysis and constructive criticism.
Thanks to crime author Pat Noad for her support and constructive criticism. Pat writes the Annie Bryce mysteries and short stories, you can find them on Amazon - based in Queensland they are suspenseful and engrossing mysteries you can’t put down.
Thanks to friends and family who listen while I talk about my books, then even read them. Special thanks to: Jan Riley, a great reader and constant fan; Nicola, who reads and checks successive drafts, and novels, an effort way beyond friendship; Jenny, who provides information on policing and insights into crime; friends who encourage me; my niece and talented writer Katelyn who with my niece Sasha made my book trailer video; to Shane Rodgers who published my first novel as a series in APN newspapers and my colleagues who went along for the ride.
