Hi, I’m Catherine, and I write the Cooper and Quinn detective series set in Sydney, Australia. I like to think of my work as crime fiction with a topical edge. There are three books in the series available so far: Dark Heart, which looks at the topic of cellular memory, Dark Past, which has themes around ancestry and genetics, and Dark Secrets, which deals with the difficult topics of bullying and teenage suicide. There's also a prequel novella, Dark City, which you can get for free on my website.

The fourth in the series, Dark Chemistry, is coming soon.

Happy New Year!

Hi Readers,

It's been a while since I wrote here. Time certainly gets away! Anyway, I just wanted to say Happy New Year, and let you know I'm planning a big production year this year. Get ready for four books in the Dark Series, starting with Dark Country (release date Feb 27th).

As well as finishing off the Dark Series, I've got ideas for a few stand-alone thrillers I'd like to explore. Plus I'm...
