Jacqui Horwood


A former Victoria Police staffer, Jacqui won the Scarlet Stiletto first prize trophy and the Chronicles Bookshop award for the Best Police Procedural for 'Slasher's Return'. Jacqui grew up on the mean streets of Frankston, reading the Famous Five and Nancy Drew and 'hoping to smash international spy rings'. She worked as a project officer for ten years at Victoria Police where she learned to decipher police jargon and recognise the difference between GBH and GHB.
