thought I should say hello - seeing I too am a Mebournite AND my latest book - an espionage thriller - is called Redback!

Perhaps my arachnophobiameter is off, but with a beast like the funnelweb spider ready to go afte everything in sight, and that funnelweb being exclusive to Australia, why the fascination with a redback? At first I thought it was a black widow but the marking is on the wrong side of the thorax.

Thanks for your comments Brenda and J Kershaw. Unfortunately the way I am going it will be awhile before I complete my own true crime book, which is actually set in the United States. I shall certainly read your book Brenda and look forward to when the Pajama girl is published as it should be fascinating. I think that I have read all of Paul
Kidd's books, and much of what is available in Austrlian true crime.

Got to jump in here. I'm in the spiders-are-beautiful camp, and have a red-back pair of earings. How many Ugghs! did I hear? CT although I'm Brisbane based, I've written a true-cime of a Sydney murder, published last year, and research a good many Aussie crimes. (Am now working on The Pyjama Girl) Have you read any of Paul B Kidd's Australian Crime File? Please come and visit me on my site.

My redback has certainly attracted a lot of attention here. I also found the picture appealing Dee, though in reality they are best avoided.

I find your red-back spider quite appealing. I can't imagine why.

Spake the lady in red

Wondeful to see that I have so many more friends, thank you all so much for accepting my invitation.

Sorry that my redback spider bothers most of you, but although I agree with Alafair that they belong in the spiders-are-creepy camp, nevertheless they fascinate me, as do sharks, which I I originally considered using as my icon. Good to hear that you are recovering from your fear of spiders though Maryann, though one must always be careful in areas where dangerous breeds lurk. My choice of a spider was due to a personal interest in the species Robert K, rather than any actual connection to the black widow, interesting thought though.

Welcome Maxine and thank you for your spider-related comments. And it's good to see my fellow Melbournian BK here too.

Thanks for your good wishes Roger, I'm afraid that as yet I don't really have a worthwhile book let alone an agent.
