Sandi is a crime writing personal trainer who lives in the Dandenong Ranges outside Melbourne. Sandi wrote her first book at the age of six and started inventing songs (in the shower) around then too. A steady diet, also from an early age, of all types of mysteries led to a grown-up addiction to crime fiction in film and print; and to dreams of becoming a crime writer. Sandi's short story 'Silk Versus Sierra' won the Best Investigative Prize in the 2013 Scarlet Stiletto Awards; she was longlisted in the 2013 Ned Kelly Awards Sandra Harvey Short Story Award; and was a finalist in the 2012 Cutthroat Journal Rick DeMarinis Short Story Contest. Sandi also writes a regular health and fitness column. Stints as banker, paralegal, cabinetmaker, office manager, executive assistant, personal trainer and journalist all provide inspiration and fodder for Sandi’s stories. She's convinced if she hadn’t turned to writing, she would have been a police detective. Sandi lives in the beautiful Melbourne hills with her husband and furry family.
Picturesque Daylesford has a darker side. Melbourne writer Georgie Harvey heads to the mineral springs region of central Victoria to look for a missing farmer. There she uncovers links between the woman's disappearance and her dangerous preoccupation with the unsolved mystery surrounding her husband. Maverick cop and solo dad John Franklin is working a case that’s a step up from Daylesford’s usual soft crime; a poison-pen writer whose targets are single mothers. Georgie’s investigation stirs up long buried secrets and she attracts enemies. When she reports the missing person to the local cops, sparks fly between her and Franklin. Has he dismissed the writer too quickly? A country cop, city writer, retired farmer and poison-pen stalker all want answers. What will they risk to get them? What will be the ultimate cost?
