Curtis Brown Australia

Psychological thriller writer Jaye Ford is quickly making a name for herself in the crime genre with her spine-tingling novels featuring gutsy characters and Australian settings.

Her first book, Beyond Fear, was the highest selling debut crime novel in Australia in 2011, the fifth highest selling debut across all genres and was shortlisted for Best Novel in the 2012 Davitt Awards for Australian women crime writers. Beyond Fear was hailed as "a must-read for its sheer suspense" (Woman’s Day) and "deliciously scary" (Sisters in Crime).

Now a full-time writer, Jaye is a former print, radio and television journalist and was Australia’s first female presenter of a live national sports show. She later ran her own public relations business.
