D.B. Tait is a lifelong lover of books in all forms but crime fiction in particular. She worked for many years in the criminal justice system before deciding a tree change was needed, so decamped to the beautiful Blue Mountains, west of Sydney. Now she writes and works part-time in the community sector, tends her out-of-control garden, and tries not to procrastinate too much. In a parallel life, she is also erotica writer Keziah Hill and contemporary romance writer Deborah Tait.
