Writers seldom work without a support team. I’m very lucky to have some talented, generous people helping me.

Kylie Fox was destined for a life of a crime – luckily she found crime fiction.
When she was a little girl, Kylie used to watch horror flicks with her Dad and was fascinated, even then, with the motivations of the Freddy Krueger types. But when she discovered the story of Jack the Ripper – in a Reader’s Digest volume “Strange Stories and Amazing Facts”, Kylie realised it was the human monsters that most interested her.
Since then, she has devoured crime books – true crime as well as fiction and at one point, even considered a career in criminal psychology.
And then – revelation – Kylie discovered it was even more fun to create her own killers, criminals, monsters and psychopaths.These days Kylie is an active member of Sisters in Crime Australia and in 2010 won the Dorothy Porter Award for Innovation in that organisation’s annual Scarlet Stiletto Awards for her short story in verse, “Poppies”. Kylie is currently putting the finishing touches on her first crime novel, featuring kick-arse assassin, Kat Delaney, which she hopes will find a publisher in 2011.

Amanda’s interest in crime fiction sprang from the world of paranormal fiction. Genre cross-overs are her passion. When reality-based human crime is mixed with the not-quite, the possibilities are endlessly fascinating.
An active member of Sisters in Crime Australia, Amanda was the winner of their 2009 1st prize Scarlet Stiletto trophy for her short story, ‘Persia Bloom’. She was shortlisted again in 2010 for ‘Annie at the Beach’.
These days she is busy working on a YA novel, as well as a novel length version of Persia Bloom; both of which are cross-over crime/paranormal stories. She also reviews and blogs on Marianne de Pierres’ Burn Bright website.

Krista was born and raised in Utah. Lucky enough to have travelled to several countries, she fully intends on traveling more. She is a collector things: Books, Music, Movies and Apple Products. She has a varied taste and all genres have caught her eye – though she tends to become obsessed with all things Teen and Young Adult. She has come to adapt to her 8 hour full time job staring at walls and florescent lighting. Developing a mental block in which she calls the CubicleBlindness. Reading is her favourite escape.
