Jill Paterson is best known for her popular Fitzjohn Mystery Series. Set in the city of Sydney and its environs, it features DCI Alistair Fitzjohn. A police officer of the old guard, Fitzjohn's methodical, painstaking methods are viewed by some as archaic. Nevertheless, over the years, they have brought him success as well as the respect of all but one of his colleagues; Chief Superintendent Grieg, the man Fitzjohn regards as his nemesis.

Jill lives with her musician husband and bossy cat, Fergus on the outskirts of Canberra where she finds many opportunities for to photograph the scenery and wildlife.
