Book cover for The Snapshot Killer: The shocking true story of predator and serial killer Christopher Wilder - from Sydney's beaches to America's Most Wanted
Van McDonald was one of Wilder’s racing mates and said of him: ‘If I were to draw up a list of the five nicest guys I know, Christopher Wilder’s name would be somewhere on that list. He was a super gentleman, generous to a fault.’

Rene Denfeld is the real deal. And I don't just mean with the talent that many writers can summon.

As an adoptive mom whose kids went through some trials and tribulations, and as a survivor herself of awful things she endured during her childhood,

Ron Rash
“When deep summer comes and the dog star raises with the morning sun, the land can scab up and a man watch his spring crop wrinkle brown like something on fire. It's the season snakes go blind. Their eyeballs coat over like pearls and they get mean. A rattlesnake allows no warning and a milk snake that would have cut the dust to the tall grass in June quiles up and strikes at anything that steps its way. It's a time when foxes and dogs go mad. They'll come shackling toward you, their lips snarly and chins white with slobber. You'll raise your gun and they'll come on like they just want to get it done with.”
Ron Rash, One Foot in Eden

Ron Rash
“Some claim heaven has streets of gold and all such things, but I hold a different notion. When we’re there, we’ll say to the angels, why, a lot of heaven’s glory was in the place we come from. And you know what them angels will say? They’ll say yes, pilgrim, and how often did you notice? What did you seek?”
Ron Rash, Above the Waterfall

Michael Farris Smith
“In the next hour, as he lay dying, he thought only of that moment of serenity, kneeling next to the church where he had been a boy before he grew into a man and realized the clarity of strength, his knees damp in the wet ground and in his palm the blue and red and purple glass.

As he lay dying, his flesh ripped like fabric, his blood flowing freely like the rain that came so often, he thought only of those beautiful shards of glass and the weight that they carried, and he found it difficult to comprehend that while he held those small holy things, how something so big and so powerful and so violent could have been so silent as it crept up behind him.”
Michael Farris Smith
