Welcome to Sydney Mysteries – a place for exploring Sydney’s mysterious past.
I write historical crime fiction set in Sydney in 1900. It’s a way of indulging my fascination with Sydney’s lesser known history and exploring it through fiction, research and images. Vanished buildings, old newspaper articles, fading photographs… they’re all here.
Taken At Night, the first in a series, is a historical mystery novel . Find it on Amazon and Goodreads. A society photographer and a detective join forces to uncover a scandal stretching from the slums to the Town Hall.
“The historical aspects of this novel are absolutely fascinating. The difference between current day The Rocks in Sydney and what it was in the 1900’s is described well, with a real sense of the deprivation and desperation in the area.”Austcrimefiction.org review
