Author Information
Wykes, Ruth

Even though she has been writing all her life, in one form or another, 2010 will be the year Ruth Wykes has her first taste of being a published author. She has co-written a true crime book with friend and mentor, Lindy Cameron.

Women Who Kill will be available in May.

Her interest in true crime and her love of crime fiction is reflected in her personal library; the only thing that competes with the resident felines for domination of her modest, but happy, home.

In Outside the Law 2 some of our best crime writers take you on a trip into the shadows of Australian society.  You’ll meet crooks who just can’t help themselves; killers with twisted logic or hearts of darkness; and cops who daily walk the thinnest of lines to keep them at bay, and away from the rest of us.

Book Title: 

I've been looking forward to this book since I first saw the very stylish cover that was produced for Lindy's latest, and Ruth's first True Crime book.  Now that I've typed that I realise how odd that probably sounds.  This is, after all, a book about Australia's worst Female murderers.

It's an odd thing but I suspect people will be slightly more disturbed by the idea of female thrill killers, opportunistic killers or simply women who kill because they can.  Probably some daft idea in society about women's role and nature.
