Portrait of Lindy Cameron

Lindy Cameron

Lindy Cameron is the author of the Bryn Gideon and Kit O'Malley series as well as true crime. Before plunging into the world of make-believe, Lindy worked as a journalist and a book editor. She also wrote some primary school history texts and a card game book for kids.

Lindy is an Australian writer of crime fiction and true crime who long ago gave up the fantasy of growing up to be a famous scientist. Lindy’s latest fiction is the adventure thriller Redback, featuring the very cool Bryn Gideon and her team of retrieval agents.

Lindy’s first published novel was the archaeological adventure Golden Relic. Her second novel, Blood Guilt, and its two sequels featuring Melbourne PI Kit O’Malley, Bleeding Hearts and Thicker Than Water, have been published in the US by Bywater Books. Lindy is currently working on the sequel to Redback and a young adult urban fantasy time-travelling adventure.

She is a founding member of Sisters in Crime Australia, and has been a national co-convenor of and editor of the group’s magazine, Stiletto, for nearly two decades.

Recently she has written and commissioned anthologies of true crime. She is therefore also the contributing editor of Meaner Than Fiction and Outside the Law 2 and editor of Outside the Law 3. With her sister, Fin J. Ross, she co-wrote Killer in the Family and she is also co-author, with Ruth Wykes, of Women Who Kill.

In 2010 Linda launched Clan Destine Press with Kerry Greenwood’s historical novel, Out of the Black Land, her own Redback, and Dougal’s Diary by David Greagg.
