About this author

My crime fiction novels are set in Thailand and feature Australian expat detective Jayne Keeney. The first book in the series Behind the Night Bazaar (Text, 2006) won the 2004 Victorian Premiers' Literary Award for Unpublished Manuscript and was short-listed for the 2007 Ned Kelly Award for Best First Book. The second book The Half-Child (Text, 2010) was shortlisted for the 2011 Ned Kelly Award for Best Fiction. The Dying Beach, the third in the series, was released in July 2013.

My short story 'The Teardrop Tattoos' won the Sisters in Crime Scarlet Stiletto in 2011. An early Jayne Keeney story, 'The Mole on the Temple', won third prize in 1998.
